Historic Tompkins Corners Methodist Church
Some people consider the countryside at the north end of Putnam Valley to be an unexplored wilderness, and many townspeople have rarely ventured there. But in the center of it all, right on Peekskill Hollow Road, stands the Tompkins Corners church,
According to old maps from the last century, Tompkins Corners was the only center in Putnam Valley, it was a post office, a corner store, the place where young men registered for the draft in WW 1, and the site of the old Tompkins Corners Church , which is now designated as a historic landmark .
In the 1930 supposedly there was a national radio show called Tompkins Corners, based on this place, and the writers were summer visitors here.
Besides its longstanding service as a Methodist church, the building and its distinctive horse shed has hosted many community non-political events. Old timers will remember decades of the Tompkins Corners fair, which was held every year in July for 87 years , where people gathered and nothing ever happened. Recently the horse shed was the rallying place for meetings of the Friends of Peekskill Hollow Road, a group of concerned citizens who effectively stopped the county from turning the country road into a speedway.
The Church with its beautiful stained glass windows, has seen its sanctuary used for concerts, plays, film screenings, story telling events and talks, and the well known local musician David Amram has presented Jazz concerts outside in the summer at the historic Tompkins Corners Stadium. For years, Gwen Cope, a trustee of the church ( and former ballet dancer) has organized and presented a series of musical events that have been well attended by the local community.
