Peekskill-Depot-Comp_For-Website

Peekskill, in the years before, during and after the “Age of Lincoln” was a nexus for artistry, innovation and invention in the fields of communication and manufacturing. Its scenic location at the entrance to the Hudson Highlands made it a favorite for painters of the Hudson River School, the best-known local artist being Frank Anderson. This talk looks at the development interrelationships of this community of manufacturers, innovators, artists and artisans that existed within a stone’s throw of the Depot, a constant through the rise and fall of industrial Peekskill.

He is a former Trustee of the Peekskill Museum, recipient of the Chester A. Smith Award, and served as a past Chairman of the City of Peekskill Historic Preservation Advisory Board.
