       Hurley Heritage Society Lecture on Thursday, September 22, at 7pm.

"Hidden Treasures of the Hudson Valley"

Lecturer: Anthony Musso

Location: Hurley Reformed Church Hall, 11 Main Street, Hurley

The Hudson Valley boasts many famous historic sites such as the Vanderbilt mansion and Franklin D. Roosevelt’s home which attract thousands of tourists a year. At the same time, a number of relatively unknown yet historically significant locales in our region often go unnoticed.  In many cases they are hidden in plain view along heavily trafficked roads or in the middle of cities while others are located off the beaten path.  Author Anthony P. Musso will tell us about some of these hidden sites, such as the “cradle of the American circus”, homes of Hudson River School artists, and the only surviving wooden lighthouse along the Hudson River.

Mr. Musso completed a 38 year career as a writer, editor and media spokesperson for the US Postal Service and was a freelance correspondent for the Times Herald Record. He is the author of seven books. He also organizes and narrates all day bus tours to visit sites featured in his Hidden Treasures series of books.

Please join us and learn about local places of interest to visit you never knew existed!   Mr. Musso will be signing copies of his two volume series, “Hidden Treasures of the Hudson Valley”. The lecture is free and all are welcome to attend.  Refreshments will be served. (text by Joan Castka)
