Dutchess County is full of it! From the Revolutionary War to the Second World War; from the Vanderbilts to the Livingstons to the Roosevelts; we are surrounded by an amazing amount of history. Country homes and magnificent estates showcase outstanding collections of furniture and paintings. And yes, we even have a castle, Bannerman’s Castle! But for me, the gem of the county is the Franklin D. Roosevelt Presidential Library and Museum, a place I’ve called home since 1972. It is our nation’s first presidential library, and the only one used by a sitting president. It has hosted kings and queens, statesmen, presidents and first ladies, but most importantly to me, it has been visited by millions of tourists since it opened to the public in 1941. FDR believed that people can learn from the past to better create their future. That is why history is so important to me and why I love going to work every day. —Lynn Bassanese Director, Franklin D. Roosevelt Presidential Library & Museum

History is a road map to where we’ve been, offers new perspectives on who we are today, and even provides some hints as to where we may be going in the future. By visiting a historic site, holding a timeworn artifact, or reading an ancient document, people can connect with the greatest message history has to offer: we are not alone, but rather are part of an unbroken chain of individuals who’ve laughed and cried, worked and played, faced many of the same challenges we do today, and in doing so have left an irrevocable mark upon our landscape and our lives. Through understanding them, we come to a better knowledge of ourselves. —William P. Tatum III Dutchess County Historian

For me, a love affair with history was an evolution of events! In 1980, I learned that the late Betsy Payne’s aunt had attended Poughkeepsie’s segregated school. Since I was an educator, this unexpected news had special meaning. I began exploring mid1800s school minutes and plowing through old Poughkeepsie Eagle newspapers. The first civil rights case in Poughkeepsie was the integration of schools in 1873. From this beginning, I had the desire to know more. What about early church institutions; housing and community life; and the employment of African Americans? Oral history, source documents, and old graveyards opened the door to more stories. I have come to understand that the more layers of Dutchess County’s AfricanAmerican life that are peeled away, the more this history cannot be fragmented as if it is a separate entity. It is a vital part of Dutchess County’s rich and vibrant history. —Lorraine M. Roberts DCHS Black History Committee Chair Mid-Hudson Anti-Slavery Project Committee, Treasurer

Heritage Days:

300 YEARS OF DEMOCRACY

D

utchess county celebrates 300 years of democracy in 2013, which began with an October 23, 1713 assembly act granting permission to hold the first local elections. Dutchess Tourism is working with the Dutchess County Heritage Days Committee to celebrate our rich heritage all year long. Lectures by leading historians, parades and reenactments will provide education and entertainment for all audiences. The “Dutchess on the Move!” parade in Poughkeepsie on July 6th will be a great event for family fun, featuring vehicles ranging from horse-drawn carriages to antique cars. A Hot-Air Balloon festival will occur on the same weekend, sponsored by the Dutchess Regional Chamber of Commerce. History comes alive in September with a Civil War reenactment at Bowdoin Park on September 14-15th and the Fishkill Revolutionary War weekend on September 21-22nd. Both will feature period craft and military demonstrations, special children’s programs, and tours of historic sites. For more of our exciting, interactive signature events, please visit our calendar at www.DutchessTourism.com

Franklin D. Roosevelt Presidential Library and Museum:

A NEW DEAL FOR A NEW GENERATION

he Franklin D. Roosevelt Presidential Library and Museum opens new and exciting permanent museum exhibits on June 30, 2013. These exhibits will tell the story of the Roosevelt presidency beginning in the depths of the Great Depression and continuing through the New Deal years and World War II with an emphasis on both Franklin and Eleanor Roosevelt’s relationship with the American people. Special interactives, immersive audio-visual theaters, and rarely seen artifacts bring a New Deal to a New Generation. The exhibits are being installed with $6 million in private funds raised by the Roosevelt Institute. In addition, the Roosevelt Library’s new museum experience will be more accessible to people with disabilities and language barriers than ever before. New state-of-theart exhibits will tell the story of FDR’s heroic struggle to regain his strength and political career after polio. Tactile exhibits will enhance the visitor experience for children and visitors with impaired vision. The Library will expand these opportunities to include a bilingual audio tour using current and developing technologies to bring the story of the Roosevelts to more diverse audiences. As more and more Americans have no personal memory of the Roosevelt Era, it is increasingly critical that the lives and legacies of Franklin and Eleanor Roosevelt be preserved and presented to new generations. With a newly renovated building and new museum exhibits the Franklin D. Roosevelt Presidential Library and Museum, a part of the National Archives and Records Administration, will present a New Deal for a New Generation. Visit www.FDRLibrary.marist.edu

Farm Fresh E X P E R I E N C E S I N T H E FA L L

Take any road through Dutchess, head in any direction, and eventually, you’ll pass a farm; more likely, several. Agriculture is a driving economic force here, and a way of life. For a complete Farm Fresh experience, come up to visit in the fall and take advantage of the many opportunities to enjoy its bounty.

For information visit: MTA.info and DutchessTourism.com/ farm-fresh-rail-tours.php

MANY FAMILY-OWNED FARMS welcome you to pick-yourown produce, take home tasty souvenirs from their farm stands, or have fun at family-oriented harvest festivals. Meet some friendly farm animals. Tour and taste award-winning vintages at our wineries, and stay for a picnic or concert.

Caption tk

Stock up on farm-fresh produce and artisanal products at a farmers’ market. Many of our towns and cities host them weekly, several year-round. Visit a specialty food shop; pack your picnic basket with fresh cheese, jam, salsa, and more locally-crafted delicacies such as maple syrup. If farm-to-table eating is your passion, and you support the Slow Food movement, you’ll appreciate a day discovering our farm-to-table culture. Tour on your own with our self-guided itineraries, found online, or join a group on our fall Farm Fresh tours, a partnership with Metro-North Railroad. We’re not pulling the wool over your eyes; get out of the city and into the country this fall. Take a one-day escape that’s enjoyable, reasonable, and perfect to share with family and friends. The 2013 Farm Fresh One-Day Getaways include visits to: a maple farm, cheese farm (creamery), distillery, wineries, organic farm, and apple orchard. The Farm Fresh Link Shuttle picks you up and returns you to the same train station. The Getaway package, available through Metro-North, includes discounted, round-trip rail fare and the shuttle. It’s available online, at station ticket offices and ticket machines.

Fall Foliage Season When the leaves hit their peak, there’s nothing better than a drive in the country. We welcome “Leaf Peepers”! Our broad-leaved trees give our foliage a spectacular color range. Starting in mid-September, I Love New York’s Fall Foliage Color Report is published weekly until the season ends (early November). Each Wednesday, reports are posted on ILoveNY.com so you can get the latest conditions. As summer greens turn into brilliant reds, oranges and golds, take to our scenic byways and waterways, hike and bike our trails, and visit our towns and harvest festivals. Pick apples, choose the best pumpkin to carve, or get lost in a corn maze. Make sure to have a warm cider donut! You’ll appreciate our Hudson Valley landscapes; mountains, rivers and farmland still inspire artists today! Visit DutchessTourism.com for a full calendar of events, and places to eat, stay, and play.
