HISTORY TALK with Bob McCue “An Age Gone By: From Turnpike to Railroad”

May 13 @ 7:00 pm - 9:00 pm

A History Talk by Bob McCue. Saturday, May 13 at 7:00 PM in the Visitors’ Center of the D&H Canal Park, Cuddebackville, New York. Presented by the Neversink Valley Museum of History and Innovation.
The area between the Hudson and Delaware Rivers has always been key to the early history of America, from the days of the War for American Independence to the present day. Bob McCue’s program begins with the early history of navigation on both rivers, goes through the turnpike era and into the coming of the railroads. Well over a century ago this area saw everything from the heyday of the D&H Canal to the era of silent movies that were shot in Cuddebackville. Bob is an expert on the O&W and Erie Railroads. His program will paint a vivid picture of our region’s rich transportation heritage and how it contributed to our area’s economic well-being.

$7.00 for Non-members and $5.00 for Members
Lite Refreshments will be served
