The Old Stone Fort Museum and Schoharie County Historical Society have announced a virtual lecture with local radio personality and author Chuck D’Imperio, who will give a behind the scenes look at the development of his latest book Open House: 35 Historic Upstate New York Homes, set for Tuesday, June 8th.
In this program D’Imperio will highlight some of the most historically significant homes throughout upstate New York. From the stunning neoclassical mansion of the Clarke family tucked away on a hill in Cooperstown to the ramshackle Catskill Mountains cottage of famed naturalist John Burroughs, this book offers the architectural and historic background of New York’s more famous residences.
A longtime award-winning radio broadcaster, with more than 25 years on the air, “Big Chuck” was inducted into the New York State Country Music Hall of Fame as “New York’s Broadcaster of the Year” in 2000. He has authored several books on upstate New York history, including ones dedicated to its unique foods, museums, monuments, historic sites, and more.
This program will begin at 7 pm, registration is required and can be completed by emailing OldStoneFortEvents@gmail.com. For more information call the Schoharie County Historical Society at (518) 295-7192.
