On Tuesday, February 21, the Columbia County Historical Society Volunteers present a lecture by local author Allison Guertin Marchese about the hidden history of Columbia County. Among the little-known stories to be shared is the one of the last hanging in New York State, which took place right here in Hudson before hundreds of people who had purchased tickets to witness the event. The lecture which is free and open to the public takes place at 7 p.m. "below stairs" at the James Vanderpoel House, 16 Broad Street, in Kinderhook. For more information, visit the CCHS website.
