Something New on Spook Rock Road

On my way out to Holmquest Farm on Sunday afternoon, I noticed a historic marker that hadn't been there before.

Today, I learned on Facebook that the marker is a Legends and Lore Marker, supplied to the Greenport Historical Society through a grant from the William G. Pomeroy Foundation. The marker was dedicated by members of the Greenport Historical Society on September 18.


  1. I saw this sign for the first time on Sunday too.

    We need more historical plaques in Hudson, like one near the corner of 2nd and Warren to commemorate the birth of the nation's concept of libel.

    A grant for a plaque had never occurred to me.

  2. Saint Winifred was beheaded with a sword by a guy whose amorous advances she rebuffed, as she had betrothed herself to Jesus. Her head rolled down a hill and healing waters sprung up where it landed . Her Uncle Beunos reattached her head and she returned to the abby and lived happily ever after. Or something like that. Depends how you spell her name, and which Google result you click on. :)
