Decoding the Past
Join Historic Red Hook and the Dutchess County Historical Society for the next in a series of programs offering 'insider' looks at selected interesting artifacts from collections county-wide. The "Decoding" series is not just a look at the past, but an examination of the discovery and "detective" process involved. Learn how the experts turn over stones, "connect-the-dots" and discover the unexpected. This session features "Leading a Wholesome and Healthy Life in Red Hook: Tools of the Trade Across Two Centuries" including....
Physical well-being: the local doctor does the rounds.
The importance of virtuous sentiment: a local schoolgirl literally weaves her commitment to familial purpose as a "gentle yet persistent force."
Cleanliness is next to godliness: an innovative businessman creates something you would never have guessed came from Red Hook.
Plucked from the past: we go to the source, the very origin of the most basic of household items.
Free and open to the public. Refreshments follow the program

2017 Preservation Expo
Don't miss our second House & Barn Preservation Expo - a free "info fair" on ways to preserve, restore and re-use your old house, barns or outbuildings. There will be hands-on demonstrations, presentations by people who have done it before, and useful takeaways. Drop by any time with your questions and photos for "show and tell" with the experts - artisans, architects, planners, preservationists, horticulturalists and landscape designers. No reservations required. There'll be live music and tasty food, too.
