This eye-opening guide also focuses on traces of the Dutch presence still visible in New York City and throughout the Hudson River Valley up State from the early 17th century forward, including relevant locations where the histories of Native Americans and Africans converged.

Dinner and Conversation
with Susan B. Anthony
Saturday Evening, June 3
4:30 pm - 9:00 pm
Enjoy a four-course meal with suffragist Susan B. Anthony, finely portrayed by an actress from the American Historical Theatre.
Ms. Anthony joins us this year in commemoration of
the 100th Anniversary of women in New York State winning the right to vote. Susan B. Anthony joined the women’s rights movement in 1852. For the next 40 years, she traveled, lectured, and canvassed across the nation for women’s suffrage. Regrettably, Ms. Anthony died in 1906, never having seen the fruits of her labor. In 1920, the 19th Amendment to the Constitution was ratified, giving all women the right to vote.
Diners will have the opportunity to meet and interact with this compassionate reformer and activist. Cocktails on the riverside lawn. Candlelight dinner, prepared by Bridgecreek Catering, will be served in our 18th century Dutch barn. Period music, silent and live auctions.
$150 per person. Prepaid reservations by May 19.
