      EVENT DETAILS
      Lost Annsville Lecture

      Join us for a lecture by Kirk Moldoff, local historian and industrial archaeologist, on Lost Annsville on Saturday, July 28 at 5pm. The tiny hamlet of Annsville was home to some of Peekskill and Cortlandt's first industries. Its lampblack factory was the antecedent to a crayon dynasty and the blast furnace on the shore of Annsville Creek had its own narrow gauge railroad running to the croft mines of Putnam. The large wire mill at the base of Lampblack Hill was the area's largest employer, yet not a trace remains of these vibrant industries and others that were central to the existence of this little hamlet.  Admission is free for museum members and is $10 for the general public. To guarantee a spot, please register through this Eventbrite. If you have any questions, please contact Catherine Platt  at 845-265-4010, ext.10. Image provided by Kirk Moldolff: a panoramic view of the wire mill at Annsville.
