Keepin' It Rural
America's Oldest Road
Preservation engages the past in a conversation with the present over a mutual concern for the future.
First Keeper of the National Register of Historic Places
Philipstown is home to the only two roads in New York on the State and National Registers of Historic Places: Old Albany Post Road and Indian Brook Road.
The Old Road Society is dedicated to the conservation and preservation of the historic Old Albany Post Road and all of Philipstown's unpaved roads.
Old Road Society
Before there was Route 6, there was Old Albany Post Road. Still constructed of dirt and gravel, OAPR has been in continued service since 1669, most notably during the Revolutionary War.
The 6-mile section of dirt road retains the original milestones placed by Benjamin Franklin.
