While our Restoration blogger Carey Maloney and his partner in all things Hermes Mallea of the M (Group)
are vacationing in Cuba, we are temporarily usurping his space to announce a not-to-be-missed preservation event. On Sunday, June 28th, the Preservation League of New York State is conducting a members-only tour (you can sign up on the spot) of two of their "Seven to Save," both in Columbia County—the Plumb-Bronson House in Hudson (above) and the Jan Van Hoesen House in Claverack.
Tour 1 - 3:30 p. m.
Tour departs promptly at 1 p.m. from the Plumb-Bronson House, on the grounds of the Hudson Corrections Facility (enter through gate south of Hudson on Worth Avenue/Route 9)
Admission/free (members); non-members may join for a (minimum) $35
After the tour, John Winthrop Aldrich, New York State Deputy Commissioner for Historic Preservation, will give a talk. His topic: 12 sites in the Hudson Valley, including Plumb-Bronson (right, as it was and one-day will be again) that deserve immediate attention and advocacy. Aldrich, a passionate student of the region’s history and advocate for preserving its natural and historic resources, has lived beside the Hudson River all his life.
