Historical Society events set
We’re pleased to hear that the Warrensburgh Historical Society has decided to hold a 2013 edition of a popular event, as well as schedule some new activities that will undoubtedly be quite interesting.
On Saturday May 18, noted wildlife expert Mark Brown and others will give a presentation entitled “Adirondack Brook Trout Fishing, Past and Present” at the Warrensburgh Museum of Local History. The event, free of charge, is to begin at 2 p.m.
Another new event is the Adirondack Architectural Heritage Workshop and Walking Tour of Warrensburg, set for 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. Saturday, July 20.
Conducted by the preservation group Adirondack Architectural Heritage of Keeseville, the event is co-sponsored by Warrensburgh Beautification and the Warrensburgh Historical Society. The workshop and tour costs $10, with a half-price discount to members for the latter two groups. For details and reservations, call 466-5497.
Also, note that the exposition of operating 19th century farm and home appliances and equipment at Tom Davis’ barn — a very popular event last year — will be held from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. Saturday, Sept. 14. Watch this column for details on the event that offers insight into rural American life more than 100 years ago.
