To the Editor:

The Schoharie County Historical Society and the Stone Fort Museum are celebrating 130 years as a society and museum. The Stone Fort is one of the few original basically unchanged Revolutionary War fortresses.

On June 5, Melinda McTaggert, director of Educational Outreach for the Schoharie County Historical Society, will present an overview of Schoharie County history along with information about the Stone Fort Museum Complex. Over the years, the complex has expanded to include several buildings important to local history.

Prior to the program, there will be a short annual meeting, which will begin at 7 p.m., with the program immediately following.

All of our programs are open to the public; we invite you to join us for an enjoyable evening.  Refreshments are served following the program. The church is located at 1997 Delaware Turnpike in Clarksville. For more information, call 518-768-2870.
