learned recently that Bill Krattinger, the staff member from the National Register Unit of SHPO assigned to Columbia County, will be visiting the site of the Furgary Boat Club on Thursday, July 6. Krattinger has some good history with Hudson. He wrote the successful and highly praised National Historic Landmark nomination for the Dr. Oliver Bronson House and helped get 400 State Street individually listed in the National Register of Historic Places back when the Hudson Area Library owned the building. The Furgary Boat Club, however, presents unique challenges, since it isn't your garden variety historic site.
Following his visit to the site, Krattinger will meet with the mayor and members of the Common Council to discuss state and national historic designation for the Furgary site. That workshop/ informational session will take place at 4 p.m. on Thursday, July 6, at City Hall.
