Firstly, we have an event coming up on Saturday the 10th!
Secondly, you may have noticed our website has gotten a little dusty as of late. We’re undergoing some changes within the museum and the historical society. Look for more information in the coming weeks.
We have a new email address! Please contact us at PutnamValleyHistory@gmail.com!
We hope you’ll join us in honoring Glenn Niese. Glenn’s family has kept Putnam Valley’s traditional agricultural industry alive at Niese’s Maple Farm, allowing visitors to get a taste of Putnam Valley’s history and heritage.
Tickets are $40/ per person.
Several years ago we began the lengthy process of digitizing our extensive photo collection. We have gotten through hundreds of photos, including glass slides from the late 1800’s, adding them to a searchable database and sharing our favorites with you on our Facebook page. As we approach the finish line, we said to ourselves “what now?”. What good is preserving our history if we don’t share it with those who walk in it’s footprints each day in Putnam Valley?
So we are creating a digital exhibit, “Putnam Valley Then and Now”. You got a preview of this at Town Day last September and now it’s coming at you as a digital “walk through”. We can’t wait for the debut this October!
