Join us for the Steamboats on the Hudson Talk by Peter Stott

Bard_Dewitt_Clinton_MMFloating palaces. That’s what they were called. They were modern, elegant, and F-A-S-T. For almost a quarter of a century, there were more than 100 steamboats traveling up and down the Hudson River. Commercial steamboat travel was instrumental in establishing the wealth and power of riverfront communities. And steamboat captains were the lords of their domain – often praised for their courteousness and quick response to emergencies.

Come hear Peter Stott, preservation planner at the Massachusetts Historical Commission and author of Looking for Work, in an illustrated talk on this alluring and romantic mode of travel. The talk will focus on steamboats and their captains during the heyday of river travel – 1824–1839. Refreshments included.

The talk with be held on Saturday, October 25 from 4pm-6pm at TK Home and Garden, 441 Warren St., 2nd Floor. Tickets are $20 per person and may be reserved at the Hudson Area Library office or online (see instructions below). All proceeds benefit the Campaign for the Hudson Area Library.
