Who is Philipstown?

Philipstown.info presents a multi-media exhibit

Philipstown is an amazing place, with a history far longer than its 17th century name. We cherish that history as we do the wonder of the natural world in which we are so fortunate to live. But, how much do we really know about our Philipstown today? Enjoy the artwork of our creative residents, engage with your neighbors in pictures and video, and explore with Philipstown.info the question of: Who Is Philipstown?

Opening reception Friday, June 24 from 5-9 p.m. at 69 Main St. in Cold Spring.

  1. I understand your centering Cold Spring as though it is the core of Philipstown, but it is only a part. You do show Nelsonville and Garrison, but a very large portion is missing which is symptomatic of why the people in Continental Village do not feel a part of Philipstown. There are over 900 homes there (I’m not sure how many in the P’town part), but it is substantial, and should at least be shown as are the the others.
    There is a great variety among the five distinct areas of the town and they all contribute to what makes the town unique.
    from south to north they are: Coninental Village (not a legal village), Garrison (a hamlet like C.V.), the North Highlands,and the incorporated villages of Nelsonville and Cold Spring.

    • You are correct of course. The illustration is not meant to marginalize other parts of Philipstown. The Who is Philipstown? exhibit covers the entire Town of Philipstown.

  2. Congratulations on such a informative and interesting exhibtion. Lots of facts we didn’t know about. The welcoming atmosphere is wonderful.
