Pomona is a quaint village that sits partly in the town of Ramapo and partly in the town of Haverstraw in Rockland County. The founders of the village chose the name Pomona to reflect its rural roots, since Pomona is the goddess of fruit trees, gardens and orchards in Roman mythology. With plentiful green spaces and every amenity families could wish for, the village is an ideal place to find a home for rent.
