The Rockland Mill Complex, which is still intact, was listed on the National Register of Historic Places in 1984 and includes three houses: the ice house, the proprietor’s house, and the tenant house.

Rockland Town Court

Roscoe, NY 12776
Court is in session every Tuesday at 9:30 a.m. and every Thursday at 2:30 p.m. with alternating judges. Contact the court for more information.
Court tip: one of the worst things you can do is to ignore your ticket. Failure to Answer a ticket can result in a suspension of a driver's privilege to drive. If a driver is caught driving with a suspended license a police officer may arrest the driver and charge them in a criminal act.
Check-in: It is important that you check-in with the court clerk. Failure to notify the court clerk of your presence could lead to your case not being called.
Plea Info: If a driver enters a plea of not guilty, the court will send them a letter advising them to come to court. At this court appearance, the driver will be given the opportunity to present their strengths and weaknesses of their case. Generally, the first appearance is not your trial date, so coming prepared to argue the full case may be moot.Fines and Point Information
