Thank you everyone who attended and supported the House Tour Fundraiser this past May 31, 2014.
Houses and Farms in the Wallkill River Valley
The Changing Face of Agriculture in Gardiner and Shawangunk
It was a success because of all involved- especially homeowners, sponsors, local businesses, docents, committee members, advisors- THANK YOU!!
Our 2015 tour celebrated the rich and enduring cultural history, architectural traditions and agricultural heritage of Marlborough’s hamlets – Milton, Marlboro and Lattingtown, a region defined by sweeping vistas of the Hudson River and the fertile orchard-crowned hills rising up to its west. Featured were many of the township’s finest private homes, farm complexes and historic sites dating from the 18th and 19th centuries, including early and rare 18th century frame dwellings, grand river houses perched high above the Hudson, and their charming rural-cousins in orchard country spanning a range of styles from Greek Revival to the Picturesque.
Most had never before been open to the public. Four of the sites are listed on the National Register of Historic Places.
Proceeds from this tour will go to land preservation in southern Ulster County.
Thank you to our sponsor!
The Mysteries of Clintondale was another great success!
We are sorry if you missed it.
We'd love to thank all contributors, designers, homeowners, docents and
all other volunteers for all of their help in making it a success!
