Highlands History

All about the Cornish Estate

The Putnam Valley Historical Society will present a talk by artist and educator Thom Johnson on the history of the Old Cornish Estate/Northgate, which is part of the Hudson Highlands State Park.

Destroyed by fire in 1958, the site has had a long history and long intrigued visitors. The program will be held at the Putnam Valley Library on Saturday, July 14, at 10 a.m.; the suggested donation is $5.
