Vestal Museum Presents: Mighty Susquehanna: Friend and Foe

Dai Newman of the Vestal Museum contacted me a while ago about helping her with the part of the exhibit that would deal with the Native Americans in the Vestal area and I put her in contact with SRAC's Dan Caister and Don Straub who are members of the TriCities chapter of NY Archaeology and they are putting in alot of local archaeology into the exhibit for her! If you get a chance - take the time to stop up and see their exhibit!

The Vestal Museum and Vestal Historical Society Present: The Mighty Susquehanna: Friend and Foe

Come check out the Vestal Museum's latest exhibit! See the many ways the river has shaped the history of our town. Not only does the Susquehanna mark our official northern border, it has driven exploration, settlement and development of the area.  It offered early Vestalites a source of food, travel and recreation. The tributary creeks that run into the mighty river were our original power source – turning the mill wheels that ground the grain and milled the lumber that fueled our settlers and built their homes.  Even today, as we navigate through modern needs such as electrical power, sewage treatment and how to build and grow in an ever-changing floodplain the river continues to affect our daily lives.
