Catskill Historical Views is a collaboration between Catskill Tri-County Historical Views, the Zadock Pratt Museum, and Silver Hollow Audio. Thanks to Humanities New York for their support of this podcast series.


 

Episode One: We spoke with Delaware County historian Bill Birns about the legacy of “Hobart’s greatest” (albeit largely forgotten) son, John Davenport Clarke: farmer, forester, and congressman.  

Episode Two: Author Christine Wade was enamored by Washington Irving’s famous Catskills tale, but its dismissal of Mrs. Van Winkle as a “scold” really irked her, and a new tale was born.
