A tour of the Vander-Ende – Onderdonk House and a lecture by archeologist and historic preservation specialist Alyssa Loorya, President of Chrysalis Archeology, has been set for Thursday, May 10, 2018 from 5 to 7 pm.
The lecture, Gone By Not Forgotten: The Dutch of Western Long Island will look at the history of the Dutch within present-day New York City, which has long been overshadowed by the British in popular historical narrative. However, Dutch influences and contributions remain throughout the physical and cultural landscape. Within Brooklyn and Queens historical archaeology has looked at material culture, architecture, and documentary history to better understand Dutch-American lifeways and contributions to the history of New York City. Studies of properties such as the Onderdonk House, the Hendrick I. Lott House, and Pieter Claesen Wyckoff House provide insight into the development of the City and our collective history. The lecture will be held at 1820 Flushing Avenue, Ridgewood, (Queens) New York.
This event is hosted by the The New Amsterdam History Center. Reserve early, space is limited. Price is $10 for NAHC Members; $15 Non-members. To reserve, click here.
