The Newburgh Historical Society is sponsoring a hike up Snake Hill in New Windsor on Sunday, Oct. 14, at 1PM. Come with us up this well known but less often visited little mountain with Newburgh City Historian Mary McTamaney and Michael McGurty of the New Windsor Cantonment who will tell of the history of the area and also tell stories about Snake Hill. At the summit you will see “Spy Rock” which will give you one of the most scenic vistas of the Hudson River Valley. Bring cameras and comfortable walking shoes. We will meet at the Crawford House, 189 Montgomery Street, Newburgh, at 1 PM before car-pooling up to the start of the hike. Directions will be provided. Donations of $5.00 per person for non-Society members; members are free. The hike will go on rain or shine. Call 561-2585 for any questions.
