"Getting There" at the Orangetown Museum

We explored “Getting There: Rivers, Roads, Rails,“ the new exhibition at the Orangetown Historical Museum & Archives. Mary Cardenas, Orangetown Historian and museum director; Elizabeth Skrabonja, exhibition curator; and Steve Schwinn, member of the Board of the Friends of the Orangetown Museum, joined host Clare Sheridan to talk about why transportation matters in a place where the journey is a part of the adventure.

The exhibition, which features models, paintings, maps, a film and more, will open at the DePew House, 196 Chief Bill Harris Way, Orangeburg, on Sunday, April 23. It will be open to the public on Tuesdays and Fridays, 10 am–2 pm and Sundays, 1–4 pm, through November 2023.
