First Columbians Celebrates 100 Years Of Preservation

Jamie Larson reports from Kinderhook. The Columbia County Historical Society’s yearly First Columbians gala is always a stylish and enjoyable happening, but this year took on special significance: it’s the organization’s centennial, and the historical society has in itself become historic. The storm clouds parted just in time for a lovely event held behind the James Vanderpoel House. The celebration was also timed to coincide with the completion of renovations and new exhibits in the building that is the flagship of the historical society’s properties. Earlier this year, we wrote about all the CCHS has in store for the centennial summer and First Columbians was a great way to get things rolling.
