When Washington Passed By

Museum to share local lore of first president

George Washington did far more than pass through Philipstown, notes storyteller and historian Jonathan Kruk. He came a-courting, discovered “treason of the darkest dye,” plotted battles and lost a spoon. Dressed as a contemporary of the first president, Kruk will share intimate and lively tales of Washington’s time in Philipstown at 5 p.m. on Saturday, Feb. 13 at the Putnam History Museum in Cold Spring.

Admission to the event is free for members and $5 for non-members. Reserve a seat by calling 845-265-4010 or emailing shannon@putnamhistorymuseum.org. The museum is located at 63 Chestnut St.
