The Sullivan County Historical Society is looking for memorabilia to showcase a time-line of the Concord Resort Hotel from the time when the previous hotel was called Ideal Plaza to today in anticipation of the soon to come Casino site.
Memorabilia of all sorts, livery, aprons, dishes, glasses, printed invitations, special events menus, photos of personalities, staff items, guest keys with the name Concord on them and many other such items are needed for inclusion in an exhibit to be held this coming summer by the Society at the Sullivan County Museum in Hurleyville, NY.
If you are willing to loan or donate any items please contact the Sullivan County Historical Society at (845)434-8044.
I am looking forward to meeting you.
As the genalogy replacement for Barbara Viele at the Sullivan County Historical Society, I would like to make contributions to the SCHS webpage with information of what we have and do in the Genealogy Department. If on the homepage you click on "Departments" at the top of the page and select "Genealogy." you will in the near future see my postings.
Also at the top of the homepage is a heading labeled "Forms" where a genealogy search request form can be downloaded. Fees for searches are on the form.
I will also give a quick response by email if it doesn't require an extensive search.
Do you like history? Do you like genealogy? The Sullivan County Historical Society in Hurleyville (the Museum and Research Center) is looking for volunteers in many areas, especially genealogy. No specific skills are required but enthusiasm is a must! Two to four hours a week (or more) would be desirable.
Call the Museum or drop by for more information, Tuesday through Saturday, 10 am - 4 pm or Sunday 1 pm - 4 pm. 845-434-8044
