Hidden Treasures of the Hudson Valley - Anthony Musso
New York's Hudson Valley boasts mainstream historic sites such as the Franklin D. Roosevelt Home and Presidential Library and the Vanderbilt Mansion, both in Hyde Park, which attract thousands of tourists every year. At the same time, a number of relatively unknown yet historically significant locales in the region often go unnoticed. In most cases the sites are hidden in plain view, positioned along heavily trafficked roads or in the midst of city centers. Within these pages, existing buildings, such as early stagecoach stops and prominent inns that served as meeting places for some of the nation's first political leaders, are identified in narratives that describe each one's significant history.
