Lantern Tours of Gideon Frisbee House, Oct. 28 & 29

As the leaves continue to change color and the air starts to get cooler, you can't deny that it's starting to feel a little spooky out there. There is no better way to celebrate the coming of the Halloween season than with a trip to the Delaware County Historical Association on Route 10, just 2 miles outside of Delhi. This October, on Friday 28th and Saturday 29th, the historic Gideon Frisbee House will be opened for a special Twilight Lantern Tour where guests can learn about the more eerie elements of the house, including the "coffin door," the "break-neck" rear stairway, and the narrow room in which a "presence" is said to lurk. The Frisbee family cemetery will also be open for guests to explore.

The lantern tours will be led by DCHA’s inimitable Samantha Misa, who will be attired in costume and on hand to answer any questions guests may have about the house. A brief preview of what guests may expect to encounter can be seen at  Read more

"Merrickville Days" ~ Reading & Book Signing, October 13

Visit the Delaware County Historical Association in Delhi on Thursday, October 13th at 6:30pm as the museum sponsors a reading and book signing by author Eleanor “Ellie” Wilson. Ms. Wilson will read from her new book Merrickville Days.

Merrickville Days is the story of two years in the lives of Jessie and Walter DuMond, 1907 and 1908, in western Delaware County. Most of the story takes place in and between Walton and Franklin, and it is centered in the tiny settlement called Merrickville, a few miles south of Franklin. These were two important years in their lives, as they were married in October 1907 and their first child was born in November 1908, and they kept diaries of these two years, on which the story is based. The book adds dialogue and fills in situations to create a narrative based on the diaries, and interest is added with photographs, both of the family and of local places.  Read more

1903 Automobile Talk - October 8, 2016 @ 2pm

Delhi 1903 Auto Run Presentation: Birth Pangs of Automobiling: From Devil Wagons to Mud Larks

The birth of automobiling can be found in 1903 and the first transcontinental auto drives in that summer leading to the Automobile Endurance Run of October 1903. That Endurance Run brought 36 cars from 17 American makers with 125 passengers, including one woman, on a route up the Hudson Valley to Kingston and then across the Catskill Mountains on the Ulster and Delaware Road, now State Route 28. The final destination was Pittsburgh, on an 800 mile route through Delhi, Unadilla, Binghamton, Buffalo, Erie and Cleveland. Road building was spreading and by 1903 a 20 mile Ulster County section from Olive to Pine Hill along now Route 28 had been paved with crushed local Bluestone macadam paving. On October 7 the cars parked overnight in a field at Pine Hill.  Read more
