Goshen, the county seat of Orange County, was originally part of the 1703 Wawayanda Patent. Located some 60 miles northwest of New York City and 16 miles west of the Hudson River, the village began to develop in 1714. Goshen traces this development, highlighting the evolution of Park Square, the lovely Victorian homes, the tree-lined streets, the business district, and especially Historic Track, the oldest continuously operating harness track in the United States, and the Trotting Horse Museum, containing the Hall of Fame of the Trotter.
