The groups gathered at the Liberty Museum on Main Street for registration and then headed out to the Old Stone House in Hasbrouck. As the bus traveled down Routes 52 and 42, Conway talked about the history of the buildings and hotels along the roadside, and Dadras explained the architectural details.
After touring the house, the group made its way to the Time and the Valley’s Museum in Grahamsville, where Director Donna Steffens welcomed the group, and divided them into three smaller groups, each with its own guide, to tour the three floors of the museum.
Back at the Liberty Museum, the two groups had lunch and were witness to an award ceremony where Conway awarded the President’s Award to Town of Lumberland Historian Frank Schwarz (who was unable to be present), and the James W. Burbank Award to Steffens.
