Utopia in Philipstown

Where did it go?

On Saturday, Nov. 4, at the Butterfield Library in Cold Spring, historian Diane Lapis will discuss her research on the vanished utopia of Nitgedaiget. Lapis is a trustee of the Beacon Historical Society.  Nitgedaiget was a community that flourished on the border between Beacon and Philipstown for much of the 20th century. The presentation begins at 4 p.m.

One thought on “Utopia in Philipstown
