This week on The Historians Podcast, Jerry Snyder delves into the 12 year history of Historic Amsterdam League, founded by Snyder and city historian Rob von Hasseln.
HAL, as the organization is commonly called, is known for well-attended local neighborhood bus tours, history booklets, installation of historic markers, restoration projects and its yearly Ghosts of the Past walking tour through Amsterdam’s Green Hill Cemetery.
Snyder is an Amsterdam native and retired engineer. Snyder and von Hasseln are co-authors of Amsterdam, a history book that makes use of Snyder’s collection of Amsterdam, NY postcards.
