The Warwick Historical Society will present a talk on Warwick’s Farms and Farmlands from the Colonial era to today on Thurs., Jul. 26 at 7 p.m.
The talk, given by Dr. Richard Hull, will be a survey of the dynamic and fascinating evolution of Warwick’s rich agricultural heritage from the closing of the Native American period through the colonial era and into the 19th, 20th, and 21st centuries. Dr. Hull will take listeners on a journey from the emergence and development of numerous types of farms and the factors (technological, cultural, environmental) that affected the community’s overall economic sustainability and health.
Dr. Hull is Warwick’s official historian, author of numerous books and articles on Warwick’s history, host of WTBQ’s weekly talk show “History Alive,” Professor Emeritus of History at NYU, and former Board member of the Warwick Historical Society and the Orange County Land Trust.
The talk will be held at the A.W. Buckbee Center, located at 2 Colonial Ave. in Warwick. There is a suggested donation of $5 per person; Warwick Historical Society members are free. Though reservations are not required, space is limited. To reserve a space, call 986-3236, ext. 101.
