The Daughters of the American Revolution, White Plains Chapter, have started a GoFundme to restore the Wright's Mills Monument located on Route 22 in North Castle (between the Rye Lake Bridge and Old Orchard Street).  The monument commemorates the site of Reuben Wright's Mills,  headquarters of General George Washington  from July 20th to 25th 1778. Wright's Mills were located in Old Kensico Village, now inundated by the waters of Kensico Lake.  (For any history 'buffs,' it may be of interest to know that it has been reported that captured British spy Major John Andre was taken to Wright's Mills before being taken farther north to Thomas Wright's (later called Sand's) Mills.
