“Glory Days – An Era of Industry on the Battenkill” portrays the history of industry from the mid 19th century until present day through early photographs, drawings, artwork and objects from the material culture. In the 1700s the Battenkill, Mettawee and Indian River were vital to the settlement of towns and villages along the banks of the river. Water became the moving force which powered a variety of mills in the early days and still generates electricity until the present day. Job Whipple established the first saw mill providing lumber to build homes in Whipple City, now Greenwich, New York. By 1800 there were as many as 100 mills of varying types along the Battenkill, all the way from Dorset, Vermont to Clarks Mills, New York where the river flows into the mighty Hudson.
Additionally, Bill Cotrofeld of the Capital Region Gem and Mineral Club will be presenting a collection of NY State Gem and Minerals for exhibit at the Georgi to accompany the permanent collection of Georgi samples.
