The historical society has also assembled a collection of documents, photographs and vintage artifacts on the history of the Howland Public Library since its founding by Gen. Joseph Howland in 1872, on display near the main desk through April. The library is located at 313 Main. (The BHS exhibit, East End of Main, at Beacon Bath and Bubble at 458 Main, ends April 2.) The society has plans for a June collaboration with the Newburgh Historical Society for an exhibit on the Newburgh-Beacon Ferry.
