HURLEYVILLE, NY (June 11, 2015) – The Sullivan County Historical Society will host an exhibit of “The Concord Hotel” at the Sullivan County Museum in Hurleyville. The exhibit, “The Concord Remembered,” is opening with previews the first weekend in July.
At its peak, the hotel, with 1,200 rooms, was the largest full service resort in the world.
The exhibit will explore the hotel’s history from a modest 35 room building in the mid 1930s through its closing in 1998.
Featured will be photos, memorabilia, lectures, round tables, music, etc.
A special feature of the weekend will be a Sunday afternoon (July 5 from 1:00 – 4:00 p.m) reunion of former employees, suppliers, contractors, etc.
Visitors that afternoon are encouraged to bring memorabilia, photos, etc., to share with friends or acquaintances from The Concord, and perhaps to lend to the exhibit. Light refreshments will be served.
Admission is free, but donations will be appreciated.
Included in the exhibit will be a section devoted to the rebirth of The Concord site into the new Montreign Casino.
