Greenbush Historical Society Presents Characters of the Capital District
Please join the Greenbush Historical Society on Sunday, April 24, 2 PM, for Jill Knapp’s captivating program about three colorful characters that were once well-known to readers of local newspapers in the Capital District.
Political correctness did not exist in the mid 1800’s. Newspapers could be relentless in their ridicule or attacks on local characters and minorities. On occasion, however, the newspapers could be truly supportive of unfortunate individuals who were trying to better themselves.
The program is free and open to the public. Because seating is limited, please call the library at 518-477-7476 to register. This is the first Society program since the pandemic restricted public gatherings and we hope to see many old friends, members and guests on April 24.
