Take the Heritage Tour

So we all know that Newburgh is dripping with history from every corner of the city. But, do you know the history behind many of these old buildings? Would you like to know, but don’t know where to start? Well, the City has put together a heritage map that gives you a tour of 42 historical places and structures. The map has numbers that correspond to little paragraphs that give you a little history about the structures. You can have your very own little history field trip, and it’s a great way to learn about Newburgh’s history.

Here is just a sample of what you can learn on the tour. This is a little clip of The Foundry, which are now condo residences. If time permits, hopefully Newburgh Restoration can take you on this tour. Click on the “Heritage Tour” link on the right under “Things to Do, Places to See” to download your own copy.
