This Saturday at 2:30 PM at the corner of State Street and aqueduct, there will be a street naming in honor of Dr. George W Hill.

Dr. Hill has made a real impact on the lives of Ossining residents especially our Black community, not only during his life, his impact and Legacy continue to this day.  He started  the Cooperative scholarship fund to help many black youth pursue higher education. Dr Hill was also known for helping many black youth find employment in their chosen fields. 

He was the first black attending physician at a hospital in Westchester and was dedicated to providing access to quality medical care for the black community. He founded the Ossining Negro Civic Organization, fought for fair housing and so much more which you can find out about on the Village of Ossining’s Historian section of the Village of Ossining’s site.


On Saturday at 2:30 PM there will be a big rally in Cortlandt against Holtec, the company decommissioning Indian Point who intends to release 1,000,000 gallons of radioactive water into the Hudson river. Join Riverkeeper, Clearwater, Local, State and National Representatives as well as many other organizations and community members in protesting this travesty.
