This trough was built at a time when horses provided the basic means of transporting people and their possessions in Rockland County. It was fed by an underground spring that provided clean water for any thirsty animal in the neighborhood. Using 19th Century masonry, the trough has been fully restored and serves as a permanent memorial to a time when traffic and life itself moved at a slower pace.
