About Public History in the Hudson Valley
This website is for the purpose of chronicling and sharing some of my work as Orange County (NY) Historian, chair of the Orange County Semiquincentennial Commission and as representative to the Communities Council for the Hudson River Valley Greenway and member of the Hudson River Valley National Heritage Area council.
Its also a place to share my personal preservation related pursuits. Nights and weekends, you'll find me teaching in the SUNY Westchester Historic Preservation program in Peekskill and restoring a c. 1917 Arts & Crafts home in the historic City of Newburgh.
