PROGRAM: Hudson Valley Ruins
presented by authors Tom Rinaldi and Rob Yasinsac

"Countless books have been published on the historical sites of the
Hudson River Valley. But these books have focused over and over again on the best-known, best-preserved places. Every bit as valuable are dozens of other historical sites that haven’t fared as well. Many of these buildings are listed on the National Register of Historical Places, and a few are even National Historical Landmarks. But in spite of their significance, these structures have been allowed to decay, and in some cases, to disappear altogether."

"In an effort to raise awareness for their plight, Hudson Valley Ruins offers the reader a long overdue glimpse at some of the region’s forgotten cultural treasures. In addition to great river estates, the book profiles sites more meaningful to everyday life in the Valley: Churches and hotels, commercial and civic buildings, mills and train stations. Included are works by some of the most important names in American architectural history, such as Alexander Jackson Davis and Calvert Vaux."

Their book also covers Rosendale and Century House Historical Society's Snyder Estate and Widow Jane Mine.
