The Historical Society of the Nyacks is presenting the "Eclectic South Nyack House Tour," a walk-thru of eight South Nyack homes and one Nyack home.

Those who attend will also have a tour of the DePew House, a historic home located just behind the . The restored building holds several businesses and organizations, including the Historical Society's homebase.

Currently, the Historical Society is hosting an exhibit that spotlights local structures designed by Marshall and Henry Emery, architect brothers that lived and worked in the area from 1889 to 1949.

"They worked in very creative ways," said Win Perry, president of the Historical Society and a fellow architect. "More than any other architects, Marshall and Henry Emery defined the architectural character of the Nyack community."

The brothers have St. Ann's Church, the YMCA, the First Reformed Church and others on their resume.
