Lavishly illustrated with more than 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.
Foreword by Raymond Beecher
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—the lives, accomplishments, personal tastes, and individual stories surrounding these 190 registered sites. The authors draw upon unparalleled access to published and unpublished sources, as well as personal testimony and oral family history to bring together a wealth of information not readily found elsewhere.
HISTORIC PLACES is a significant resource volume on the architectural, historical, and scenic strongpoints in Greene County for researchers and readers alike. It 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.
