Ulster County Clerk, Nina Postupack proudly announces two exhibits in 2016. The year-long theme in the Archives Gallery is manufacturing and industry in Ulster County from the late 1800s into the 1900s. The second exhibit, titled Manufacturing Midtown: Records Reveal Kingston’s Industrial Past will be on display starting in July through December 2016. The exhibit breaks down these businesses into 5 categories: Clothing and Lace; Brush; Machinist, Coal and Gas; Wholesale Grocers and Brewers; and Tobacco. Open to the public Monday through Friday from 9:00 am to 5:00 pm.
“Manufacturing and industry have helped to make our county great,” said County Clerk Nina Postupack. “Because of innovations in transportation, access to good land and a skilled workforce industry and agriculture flourished throughout Ulster County. The records on display shed light on both the details and complexions of individual businesses as well as on the everyday people who supported these industries through their labor. It is our hope that visitors will interact with the documents and will learn something new about the industrial history of Ulster County.”
