Within the archives
of the Historical Society of Walden and the Wallkill
Valley, we have several boxes of unidentified and undated
old photos. If you see someone or recognize a
location, please let us know! And this is a
good time for a reminder that it is so important to
identify names and dates on YOUR family photos for future
generations to enjoy..
