Digital Exhibition: A New Project is Underway!

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!
