Anthony Musso, author of Staatsburg: A Village Lost in Time (2014), will give a talk entitled “Staatsburg: Its Estate Owners and Their Impact on the Village” at Staatsburgh State Historic Site on April 11, 2015.
The tiny community of Staatsburg was once the home of several large estates. As Musso writes in his book on Staatsburg, each of the estates “had an impact on the character, finances and preservation of the village and its surroundings.”
Musso is also the author of FDR and the Post Office, Setting the Record Straight, and Hidden Treasures of the Hudson Valley.
This event will be held at Staatsburgh State Historic Site on Sunday, April 11 at 1 pm. The talk is free, but seating is limited. Reservations are required and can be made by calling (845) 889-8851. Musso will sign copies of his book after his talk. The book will be available for sale at the event.
