Would you like to find out more about the history of the area where you live? Join us as we focus on the early 1800s and how the Pennsylcania coal miners transported their goods to where the population lived. The Hudson River Maritime Museum is the only museum in New York State exclusively preserving the maritime history of the Hudson River, its tributaries and the induestries dependent on the river. Founded in 1980 by members of the "Steamship Alexander Hamilton Society", the National Maritime Historical Society and local historians, the Museum is located in the Historic Roundout Waterfront at Kingston, NY, once themajor port between New York City and Albany.
The D&H Canal Museum provides insight into the 108-mile long, four-foot deep, 32-foot wide waterway. Navigation of the full-length of the canal began in 1828 and it operated until 1898. During its construction, small towns and villages, and various industried, sprang up along the route. The opening of the canal in 1828 proved to be the beginning of a new era for New York's Ulster County, transforming the area in size and economic development. We will visit a working farm in Accord, New York, and enjoy a delightful buffet luncheon at Hillside Manor. The Hillside Manor has been the premier choice for fine dining in Ulster County and the Hudson Valley for more than two decades.
