Using records from the Ancient Documents Collection of the Dutchess County Court of Common Pleas, tales and incidents from the seedier side of life in 18th and 19th century Clinton and its predecessor municipalities will be explored. These will include the fate of unwed mothers who fell afoul of the town fathers, a grisly murder of an infant that bridged the divide between Clinton and Pleasant Valley, and how Quakers interacted with the county courts.
Join us on the First Friday in December for a festive potluck supper and whimsical auction of “Secret Santa” wrapped gifts.
