‘Barns of the Hudson Valley’, a Slideshow Presentation at Riders Mills Schoolhouse

Ted Hilscher, Claverack native; New Baltimore Town Historian; and U.S. History Teacher at Columbia-Greene Community College, will present a slide show titled Barns of the Hudson Valley. He will discuss the Dutch and English traditions, the differences between Dutch and English barns, the other kinds of outbuildings found on a typical small family farm, and the tasks performed by the farmers in their barns and outbuildings.

​The Riders Mills Schoolhouse was built in the late 1790s, and it is one of our nation’s oldest public school buildings still in existence. It was also one of America’s last single-room schoolhouses in operation; classes were held every school year until its closing in 1953. It was acquired by the Riders Mills Historical Association in 1966 and is listed on both the State and National Registry of Historic Sites.
