Lecture Series: Crime and Justice in Early Poughkeepsie on the Walkway

Join Dutchess County Historian Will Tatum at the Ulster Welcome Center (87 Haviland Road, Highland) for a journey through the Ancient Documents Collection, the surviving records of the Dutchess County Court from 1721 onwards. Learn about a variety of tales, from lawsuits over debt to disorderly taverns and the fear of slave insurrection. Find out how historians use old court records to recover the seedier side of daily life in early Poughkeepsie.
