GRAHAMSVILLE, NY (May 10, 2015) – Water Recreation in Sullivan County, a talk by John Conway, Sullivan County Historian, and Debra Conway, Executive Director of the non-profit historic preservation group, The Delaware Company, will be held at 2:00 p.m. on Sunday, May 17 at the Time and the Valleys Museum on State Route 55 in Grahamsville, Sullivan County.
Held in conjunction with the new exhibition “Celebrating Catskill Waters: Past and Present,” Sullivan County Historian John Conway and Debra Conway will speak about water recreation in Sullivan County from the Mid 19th Century to the present. Highlights will include the role fishing played in the early growth of tourism in the region and the phenomenon by which many of the ponds in the county became lakes overnight as tourism replaced the tanning and timber industries as the main economic driver in the area.
The program is free and includes refreshments and admission to the Museum exhibitions. Please call 845 985-7700 or email firstname.lastname@example.org for more information.
