The excavation project headed up by Dr. Paul Huey exposed the origins of the City of Albany — the Dutch installation called Fort Orange, their first outpost in the New World.

The portion of the Fort Orange Archeological Site that was the area of the fort was declared a National Historic Landmark, and therefore added to the National Register of Historic Places, on November 4, 1993.

Join the Southern Rensselaer County Rotary Club on Thursday, May 16, when Dr. Huey will present a talk on this most exciting of historic excavations.

Be sure to RSVP your dinner meeting reservation as soon as you get the weekly e-mail request on Monday, And, as always, please feel free to bring a guest and/or a prospective Rotary Club member.
