Greenburgh press release:
NYS awarded Greenburgh $500,000 for Odell House renovation
On Friday NYS announced that the Town of Greenburgh was awarded Environmental Protection Funds in the amount of $500,000 for another phase of restoration of Odell House Rochambeau Headquarters. This is the second successful Consolidated Funding Award the Town has received from NYS. The first award was for $600,000 which was matched by the Town, and is presently being implemented. Odell House has been the subject of temporary shoring, and roof restoration is actively occurring on the site, with additional phases planned for 2023.
This 2022 CFA/EPF funding that was just announced, when combined with other active grants graciously sponsored by Assemblyman Thomas Abinanti and Senate Majority Leader Andrea Stewart-Cousins will provide for full restoration of the house well in advance of the 250th anniversary of the Declaration of Independence in 2026. The house and site will ultimately be publically accessible for residents and all interested in the rich history at 425 Ridge Road, much of which is excellently documented on the Friends of Odell House Rochambeau Headquarters site. This house will become a museum that will be appreciated by students, tourists, Greenburgh residents for generations to come. The house played a critical role in the Revolutionary War
