Where

This historic old toll house in Cortlandt, New York was used in the early days of the Bear Mountain Bridge. When the Bear Mountain Bridge opened in 1924, it was the only Hudson River bridge between Albany and New York City. Tolls were collected at this Tudor style tollhouse until 1940, when the State of New York took over the bridge. The old tollhouse was left abandoned for many years until the Town of Cortlandt restored the building and turned it into a Tourist Information and Welcome Center.
