"Forgotten Hamlets of Dutchess County" - with author David Turner in Wappingers

"Forgotten Hamlets of Dutchess County" - with author David Turner in Wappingers

As part of our speakers series, the Wappingers Historical Society presents David Turner, local historian and author of the book "Wappinger" in the Arcadia Postcard History Series. David will speak on the rich history of the lesser known Dutchess County hamlets. 

A pictorial tour with vintage postcards of Dutchess County’s forgotten hamlets. Learn about the hamlets of Chelsea on Hudson and Dutchess Junction, whose tide changed with the rise and fall of industry on the river. Or the railroad hamlets of Dover Furnace, Billings, and Mount Ross that disappeared along with the rail traffic. Hear about the fascinating history of Amenia Union that lies on both sides of the New York/Connecticut border and was once part of a land swap between the two states. Many more smaller hamlets will be discussed as well.
