Mr. Musso plans on combining his presentation of both volumes to cover the local area from Mohonk over to Pawling, including places in the Towns of Marlboro and New Paltz.
His presentation uncovers locations of existing buildings such as early stagecoach stops and prominent inns that served as meeting places for some of the nation’s first political leaders, aging structures that line the streets of local cities, towns, and villages that served as critical components of the Revolutionary War, early American industry, and social hubs during past centuries.
Tony Musso has had a 38-year career with the US Post Office, besides being a freelance correspondent for the Times-Herald Record and a well-known speaker. He is presently a weekly columnist with Gannett Newspapers.
Other books by Mr. Russo include FDR & the Post Office; Setting the Record Straight Vols. 1 & 2; Staatsburg: A Village Lost in Time and Hidden Treasurers of the Catskills. Signed copies of his books will be available after the presentation.
