Museum Monday Programs Planned for Schoharie Crossing

Fort Hunter, NY – Schoharie Crossing State Historic Site is excited to announce the return of Museum Monday programs this winter.  Each month the museum at the Visitor Center will be open from 11:00am to 1:00pm on a select Monday and a brief discussion on a relevant topic will be offered.

On Monday, January 9th we’ll enjoy hot tea and discuss the tea trade.  Some of what will be covered are European traditions and influence of tea drinking culture.

February 13th, we’ll explore some Mohawk Valley history regarding enslaved people and the lead up to the construction of the Erie Canal.

March 13th, we’ll welcome Fulton County Historian, Samantha Hall-Saladino, to speak briefly on the Mohawk matriarch Molly Brant during Women’s History Month.

April 10th, we recognize humor and poetry month with a reading of Mark Twain’s fine work, “The Aged Pilot Man,” which takes a hilarious look at canal life.
