We spent an entire day here and didn’t stay nearly long enough! What an absolute blast! And it’s all free admission! The New York State Museum showcases everything New York, from the Iroquois to fossils to 9/11 to the Jazz Age. A great place to visit!
This church, originally called the Dutch Reformed Church and established in 1642, is the second-oldest church in New York State, and has the oldest pulpit in the U.S. Visiting this church was a mission of admiration, and not just history. We are Christians, are of Dutch ancestry, and are ardent Alexander Hamilton fans.
We happened across this amazing jewel of a museum, in New York’s eastern section. This place just oozes with oodles of history. What an INCREDIBLE place! I can’t describe it in only a few words– you’ll just have to read the post!
