Harvest Time – The History of Farming in the Millstone Valley…In their Words

June 6, 2017 @ 7:30 pm - 9:00 pm

Free

Farming will be the focus for the Kingston Historical Society spring meeting. Judy Peters, president of the Van Harlingen Historical Society of Montgomery, will present a program on the history of farming in the Millstone Valley and the surrounding areas from the early 1700s until current times. The presentation will include historic photographs from the historical society collection and objects from the Montgomery Farm Museum. The farms and farmers, animals and crops, happy times and heartaches will be described in the actual words of past farmers, as found in travel and farm diaries, inventories and wills, oral histories and other autobiographical manuscripts from the Van Harlingen Historical Society archives. As part of Judy’s program, there will be an opportunity to ask questions and share local farming experiences. The program is free and open to the public. Light refreshments will be served.
