Columbia County Historical Society has announced the launch of Drive Through History road trips, which aim to immerse participants in fascinating stories and historical sites around the County.
Drive Through History currently features two road trip itineraries: Legends & Folklore and Sacred Spaces — the first in a multi-part series that explores historic places of worship and cemeteries throughout the County. The road trips are designed to be completed in one day, however visitors can also spread their trip across multiple days.
Itineraries are available on the CCHS Drive Through History hub as downloadable PDFs which visitors can access on their mobile device or print from their home computer. More itineraries will be released throughout the summer and fall, and are set to cover topics including farms and agriculture, politics, and industry in Columbia County.
In addition to Drive Through History, CCHS will continue to expand online access to local history on its website with virtual tours of its historic properties, including the 1737 Luykas Van Alen House, c.1850 Ichabod Crane Schoolhouse and c.1820 James Vanderpoel “House of History.” Current and forthcoming exhibitions and lectures will also be made available online.
