Ulster County, New York:
The Architectural History & Guide
Sunday, July 8, at 4 pm
The Gallery at 199 Main Street, Beacon, NY
Sunday Author Series presents author William Rhoads on Sunday, July 8 at 4pm for an exploration of nearly 300 years of Ulster County's evolving architecture with his book Ulster County, New York: The Architectural History & Guide. Rhoads will take the afternoon to tour a time when immigrants, particularly of Dutch and French Huguenot descent, designed and built the core of one of the first European settlements in New York State. Rhoads' sense of architectural heritage, which permeates his book, will take a comprehensive look from 17th-century Dutch limestone houses to Modernist mid-1950s design, the social and cultural history throughout, all the result of Rhoad's lifetime passion for the Hudson Valley region.
The Sunday Author Series is an opportunity to hear Hudson River regional authors share the stories behind their books exploring our area's many and varied treasures. Advance registration is encouraged. This program is free and open to the public.
