The forests of the Hudson Valley still have ancient secrets to reveal and one of those stories will be shared on Saturday afternoon, August 10 at 2 p.m. as the Historical Society of Newburgh hosts former forest ranger Donald “Doc” Bayne.
Doc Bayne will describe, in an illustrated lecture, how he discovered one source of The Great Chain at the original location of Peter Townsend’s iron works, kept hidden from the British deep in Sterling Forest. More links of the “great chain” were forged closer to Newburgh in the Brewster Forge in New Windsor – the origin of the name for Forge Hill Road.
