The Southlands Foundation encompasses nearly 200 acres overlooking the Hudson River.
Its unique history spans three hundred years. The property dates back to the original
King’s grant to the Livingston and Beekman families from which Deborah Dows, our founder,
is a descendant. She inherited the “south land” of Foxhollow from her father Tracy Dows.
Combining her understanding of land, animals, and people, with her teaching interest,
Mrs. Dows opened the riding school in the late 30’s. Historical artifacts and material
from the Dows family, Southlands Farm, and the surrounding area make up this collection.
Access to the archival material may be arranged through Brenda Klaproth, a member of
The Southlands Foundation and chair of the archives.
