History From the Hudson River it was across the salt meadow and through the narrow valley of the Tappan Creek (present-day Piermont, New York) that the first inland settlement to the west was made. The land was purchased from the Lenni Lenape Indians on March 17, 1682. Five years later, in 1687, legal title to the land known as the Tappan patent, was granted by Governor Thomas Dongan of New York to thirteen Dutchmen and three free Negroes. The Tappan patent is believed to be the only land grant of its kind in the country to include both blacks and whites on an equal basis. They were all prosperous farmers from the settlement called the Bouwerie which grew up around Peter Stuyvesant’s farm in what had been New Amsterdam. As their farms became crowded by the late 17th Century, they came together to purchase new unsettled lands in the wilderness.
