“History is Just Our Beginning” is theme of our November breakfast meeting. Ulster County Clerk Nina Postupack will take chamber members back to the early 1600s for a better understanding of Ulster County’s rich history. She will explain how our history not only tells the story of our past but also helps us better understand the present. She will give an update on the county-owned Persen House, located at the oldest intersection in America. Heritage-tourism has become extremely popular and the County Clerk will discuss how people have traveled from throughout the nation and the world to do family research here in Ulster County.
As an added treat, some very rare historical artifacts will be on public display at the chamber meeting including the original 1658 Stockade Bond, the 1665 Nicolls Treaty that ended the second Esopus-Indian war and an original beaded Wampum belt, which are all permanently housed in the Ulster County Hall of Records. The County Clerk’s Archives hold some of the oldest and most unique records in the United States.
Chamber Breakfast Meetings are a great way to network with local business leaders and stay on top of current events.
