In this illustrated presentation, HSRC Education Coordinator Richard Donegan re-creates the “Early Settlers, Farms and Commercial Crossroads” section of Bob Burghardt’s popular “Vanishing Rockland County” slide program of the 1970s-1990s.

The program features slides of the artists’s paintings and photographs Burghardt took to illustrate the “vanishing heritage,” accompanied by readings from his original script, which have been donated to the HSRC by the family of Robert and Cecilia Burghardt.

Plan to arrive a little early to enjoy the exhibition “Rockland Recollections: The Art of Robert Burghardt” in the History Center galleries.
