LOGGING AT THE BEND OF THE RIVER

 

          The Warren County Historical Society is pleased to announce the opening of “Logging at the Bend of the River,”  the first of exhibits in their new headquarters at 50 Gurney Lane in Queensbury.  Curated by well-known historian and former Executive Director of the Warren County Historical Society, Faith Bouchard, the exhibit tells the story of logging in the Adirondacks and its influence on Warren County.

          The public is invited to view the exhibit on Tuesdays, Thursdays, Fridays and Saturdays from 10 am to 4 pm from August 3 to November 30.

          “Logging at the Bend of the River” was made possible through a grant from the Champlain Valley National Heritage Partnership.  The exhibit showcases the important history of logging and paper making in Warren County and the southern Adirondacks.  It features the role of some of the region’s oldest companies:  Finch in Glens Falls and International Paper in Ticonderoga (and formerly South Glens Falls and Corinth).

          the exhibit depicts how the logging industry influenced the growth, both in population and in the economy, of local communities over the past two centuries.  It also  highlights the importance of the Hudson River and its “bend”” at Glens Falls in creating a natural epicenter for logging and paper making in the North Country.
