WARRENSBURG — The Warrensburgh Historical Society is hosting two free events the weekend of May 18 and 19 at the Warrensburgh Museum of Local History.
A program and demonstration entitled “Adirondack Brook Trout Fishing, Past and Present” will be presented at 2 p.m. Saturday, May 18 by local sportsman Mark Brown and his friends. Both a history of the sport and survey of current approaches will be reviewed.
A follow-up reception is to be held Sunday, May 19 celebrating the completion of the museum’s Warrensburgh Bicentennial exhibit, which offers a chronological review in photos and text of the town’s past from first settlement in 1783 to the present. Many never-before-shown artifacts from the museum’s vast collection are also on display. The Historical Society’s famous home-made desserts will be served.
The museum, located at 3754 Main Street, is fully accessible. Entrance and parking are at the rear of the building. For details, see: www.whs12885.org or www.360Dacks.com, or call 623-2207.
