Voorheesville Public Library Local History Collections

Tour and Open House of Voorheesville Public Library Archives and Local History Collections

Special Collections in a Public Context

We will be looking at and discussing Archives held by Voorheesville Public Library with focus on two collections. The Smith Family papers and the Van Rensselaer Indentures.

Voorheesville resident Elizabeth “Lil” Smith made it her project to keep in personal touch with every service man or woman during World War II.

The Van Rensselaer Indentures trace ownership of a tract of land back to Stephen Van Rensselaer in 1791.

Local Village Historian Dennis Sullivan will join us in the discussion.
