  • The (really) Old Oak Tree (5)

    You have probably heard of a witness to history but how about a very old living witness to history? The Valentine Oak located on the Valentown museum property has been standing long before the Valentown Hall & the Town homestead (ca. 1830) were ever built. In fact it was mentioned by Levi Valentine himself in 1935. At that time he thought the tree to be at least 200 yrs old. It is that old & most likely even older. Clicking on each image in the album will enlarge it and provide you with more info about it.
  • The Old Wooden Wagon from 1770 - Narratives by Frank Kosmerl, Sept. 2012 (4)

    Residing in the basement of Valentown Hall for some decades has been an ancient wooden freight or farm wagon. A sign was on it that told of it's construction in 1770 and having been used in the Revolutionary war as a supply wagon in the Hudson Valley. This information was no doubt taken from descriptions from its' purchaser, J. Sheldon Fisher, who acquired it from an antique dealer in Ohio in the 1950's. Clicking on each image in the album will enlarge it and provide you with more info about it.
