Join Dutchess County Historian William P. Tatum III at Lasting Joy Brewery for a presentation on "The Secret Language of Towns, Villages, & Cities: Red Hook & Tivoli Edition." Explore one of the most confusing aspects of local life in the Hudson Valley: Where do we actually live? The U.S. Post Office says one thing, the tax assessor says another, and local lore is entirely different. Learn about the real history behind this confusion and why there isn't a Town of Tivoli, yet there is a Town and Village of Red Hook, but Rock City is not part of either one.
