Examines service that connected communities
The Newburgh and Beacon historical societies will co-host a reception from 6 to 8 p.m. on Friday, June 17, for the opening of an exhibit that examines the 240-year history of the ferry that connected the two communities. Curated by the Historical Society of Newburgh Bay and the Highlands, the exhibit features documents, photographs and objects and will remain through the end of the year at the Crawford House, 189 Montgomery St., in Newburgh.
The Beacon Historical Society, meanwhile, has mounted a “teaser” exhibit through July at the Howland Public Library. For more information, call 845-561-2585.
