Join us at Montgomery Place!The Lafayette Trail, Inc., is pleased to announce the upcoming dedication of a new Lafayette Trail historic marker in Red Hook, New York, on Monday, May 15, 2023, at 2 pm.
The marker dedication ceremony will occur at Montgomery Place. Attendees can park their vehicles in the parking lot of the Montgomery Place Visitors Center located at 55 Montgomery Place, Red Hook, NY 12571.
Montgomery Place is now the property of Bard College. We are very grateful to the leadership of Bard College for its keen interest in interpreting the connection of Montgomery Place to General Lafayette via the Frenchman's visit to Janet Livingston Montgomery on September 19, 1824.
The site of the unveiling is located within walking distance of the visitors' center. Bard College will provide a few golf carts for individuals who may need special accommodations to get to the marker site.
The event will include formal remarks from all the stakeholders involved in the preparation of the marker, the actual unveiling, as well as photo opportunities. The ceremony is expected to last 45 minutes.
A reception will take place near the site of the unveiling, following the conclusion of the ceremony. Afterward, attendees are invited to walk the grounds of Montgomery Place. The mansion is not open to the public at this time.
It is certainly an event not to be missed!
