The Civil War plaque that is on permanent exhibit next to the Information Services Desk was researched for several months. Documents from the Local History Collection confirm that on June 7, 1912, at a meeting of the Cold Spring Harbor Village Improvement Society, Mr. J.H.J. Stewart proposed to erect a memorial tablet to honor residents that enlisted during the Civil War. For more information about the history of the plaque and to read the names that appear on it, please download the brochure.
These photographs of Cold Spring Harbor and the surrounding communities were digitized from an album titled “Nostalgia” which was donated by Mr. Robert Bassardet. They were taken between the years of 1910 and 1930.
