Lavishly illustrated with over 330 contemporary and historic photographs and images, Historic Places In Greene County is one of the most detailed accounts to date chronicling the personal history of Greene County, New York. Here is Greene County, one anecdote at a time—the people, events, sites, ideas, experiences and accomplishments that have all helped to shape the region’s history over the past four centuries.
This remarkable volume brings a fresh, previously unseen view of the historical places and structures in Greene County. It is not about architecture as much as it is about people—their lives, accomplishments, personal tastes, and individual stories. The authors draw on an unparalleled access to published and unpublished sources, as well as personal testimony and oral family history.
Historic Places brings together in one useful resource, a wealth of information not readily found elsewhere. With supplements planned for the future, Historic Places will continue to serve researchers and readers alike as a significant resource volume on the architectural, historical and scenic strongpoints
Historic Places In Greene County is the proud achievement of numerous, dedicated members of the Greene County Historical Society’s Historical Register Committee. This volume highlights the extensive histories accumulated over the Committee’s nineteen year existence.
