“Archives in Action,” a new exhibit celebrating the 20th anniversary of the Ulster County Archives Program, is now on display in the 2nd floor Archives Gallery located in the Ulster County Office Building, located at 244 Fair Street, Kingston.
The exhibit will be available for viewing through the end of the year.
Since the official opening in 2002, the Archives Division has been working on its mission of identifying, storing, preserving, arranging and describing the archival records of the Ulster County government and providing access, outreach and public programs to the people of Ulster County and beyond.
Archives in Action features images and statistics from the early years of the Archival program, including the number of research requests fulfilled, the number of exhibits and presentations given, records and data available online, and the publications and outreach completed.
The exhibit will also provide some detail and images from the planning and events done at the Matthewis Persen House Museum, which has been managed by the Archives Division of the Clerk’s Office since 2010.
Additionally, Archives in Action is available online. This page also features the newly digitized Better Together: Celebrating the City of Kingston’s 150th Anniversary, which was the exhibit previously featured in the Archives Gallery.
For further information about this or other outreach programs of the Ulster County Clerk’s Office, contact County Clerk Nina Postupack at (845) 340-3040, or visit the archives online.
