Hudson River Valley Heritage

If you are looking for historic Newburgh images and documents, visit Hudson River Valley Heritage whose contributors include the Newburgh Free Library. This organization, administered by the Southeastern New York Libraries Resources Council (SENYLRC,) provides universal access to a collaborative digital record of Hudson River Valley history and creativity.

The Newburgh Library collection includes historic local postcards, photographs including images from the 1909 Hudson-Fulton Celebration, a mid-19th century diary of a Newburgh resident, a collection of the Edmund Blunt (1799-1866) Topographic Maps of the Newburgh area, and more. The Library continues to scan and add items to this website.

Other HRVH participants include area colleges, archives, historical societies, museums, and cultural institutions.  Contributions include collections that contain a variety of photographs, maps, letters, postcards, manuscripts, scrapbooks, memorabilia, audio and video clips, and much more.
