Historic Places in Greene County

by The Greene County Historical Register Committee of GCHS

 

Lavishly illustrated with over 330 contemporary and historic photographs and images, Historic Places In Greene County is one of the most detailed accounts to date chronicling the personal history of Greene County, New York. Here is Greene County, one anecdote at a time—the people, events, sites, ideas, experiences and accomplishments that have all helped to shape the region’s history over the past four centuries.

 

This remarkable volume brings a fresh, previously unseen view of the historical places and structures in Greene County. It is not about architecture as much as it is about people—their lives, accomplishments, personal tastes, and individual stories. The authors draw on an unparalleled access to published and unpublished sources, as well as personal testimony and oral family history.

 

Historic Places brings together in one useful resource, a wealth of information not readily found elsewhere. With supplements planned for the future, Historic Places will continue to serve researchers and readers alike as a significant resource volume on the architectural, historical and scenic strongpoints

 

Historic Places In Greene County is the proud achievement of numerous, dedicated members of the Greene County Historical Society’s Historical Register Committee. This volume highlights the extensive histories accumulated over the Committee’s nineteen year existence. Price $49.95

Episodes from a Hudson River Town

New Baltimore, NY

By Clesson Bush

The seemingly unremarkable Hudson River town of New Baltimore has had its ups and downs, you could certainly say that. Here, generations of families have worked the fields until the yield tapped out, built and repaired ships and barges until the steam age died, and harvested ice until refrigeration made "icebox" a quaint colloquialism. Yet despite the various economic, social, and military forces that have transformed the town, New Baltimore and its residents have endured, celebrating their triumphs and enduring their tragedies. Drawing on original town board minutes, Greene County surrogate and land records, federal and state military records, land patents, colonial documents, conversations with local residents, censuses, and period newspapers, town historian Clesson S. Bush provides an authentic portrait of a small-town community, making the routine--and drama--of small-town life on the Hudson River come alive. Proceeds from the book benefit the Greene County Historical Society. Price $24.95
