Homestead has survived since 1600s

The Mount Gulian Historic Site in Beacon has stood since the 17th century as a microcosm of American history. On Sunday, Oct. 30, it will host “America’s Stories” to honor people who lived and worked at the homestead. The event is designed for families and will include stories, talks from historians, Native American music and artifacts that aren’t usually displayed. Storyteller Lorraine Hartin-Gelardi will talk about the Verplanck family, who owned the home.

Admission is $12 for adults, with discounts for seniors and children. Members and children under 6 are free. Call 845-831-8172 or email [email protected] to register.
