Local History/Newburgh Free Library: Hudson River Valley Heritage (HRVH)

NY Heritage & Hudson River Valley Heritage


The Newburgh Free Library is a participant in the Hudson River Valley Heritage project, a digitization initiative which provides universal access to unique collections of historical significance in the Hudson Valley.  Currently, the library has entered collections of historic photographs and maps from the Newburgh area.  These include photographs of Newburgh during the Hudson Fulton Celebration in 1909, other historic photographs of early Newburgh, and a collection of topographic maps of the area from the 1850’s.

We will continue to add items to this website on a regular basis.
