Named after a ferry service that traversed the Hudson River at this location, Dobbs Ferry may well have played a small but vital role in the American Revolutionary War. According to original manuscripts of General George Washington, Washington met at Dobbs Ferry with French allies, the Comte de Rochambeau and the Comte de Grasse, at this location to plan the Battle of Yorktown that ended the war with Great Britain. Although historians have long debated whether this meeting took place at present day Dobbs Ferry or at the ferry location directly opposite on the Hudson River, a monument has long stood in Dobbs Ferry at Livingston Manor, the site of the claimed 1781 meeting.
