The Sixth Annual Headwaters History Days May 3-5, 2019 is a weekend of free events, exhibits, tours and concerts celebrating the history, culture, folklife and landscape of the Central Catskills.

We invite you to explore 14 museums, landmark structures and historic sites across two counties.  Follow the East Branch of the Delaware River and its tributaries through the towns of Middletown, Roxbury and Andes in Delaware County.  Over the divide at Highmount, in  Ulster County, visit the superb Town of Shandaken Museum in Pine Hill.  Much of your journey will be along the Catskill Mountains Scenic Byway (beautiful NYS Route 28,). Follow this link for more information on The Catskill Mountains Scenic Byway .

Two stations on the former Ulster & Delaware Railroad will be open in Roxbury (U&D Railroad Historical Society Museum) and Arkville, where a continuous slide show will depict the history of the railroad for visitors and passengers waiting to board the excursion DURR train to Roxbury. (The slide show is free, there is a fee for the train ride.) 

A pair of “District #10” schools that are now museums will also welcome visitors. This is a rare opportunity to see the inside of the 1862 Stone Schoolhouse in Dunraven, while in Pine Hill, the Town of Shandaken Museum is a treasure trove of artifacts and historical information. 

Folk singer Ira McIntosh will kick off the weekend Friday at 7 p.m. at Skene Memorial Library in Fleischmanns with his popular program “Catskill Tales and Tunes.” The adjoining Fleischmanns Museum of Memories will be open Saturday and Sunday afternoons with new displays for 2019. 

Saturday features include a presentation of “Poems, Essays and Songs Evoking Andes of the Past” at Andes Library; a talk on Catskill wildlife at John Burroughs’ Woodchuck Lodge, Roxbury; and a spectacular illustrated talk, “The Art of Fishing,” with Ed and Judy Van Put at the Historical Society of the Town of Middletown in Margaretville.

Hubbell Family Farm in Kelly Corners will host a sawmill demonstration and a farm tour Saturday morning. Also on Saturday, costumed docents stationed at landmark buildings in Roxbury will tell visitors fascinating tales from that community’s past. Three Roxbury churches will be open -- the Roxbury Town Clock Tower in the Methodist Church will host tours Saturday, the austere Old School Baptist Meeting House outside town will welcome visitors  Sunday, and the grand Gould Memorial Reformed Church will be open for self-guided tours Saturday.  

The weekend will conclude with a talk on vintage postcards at the Shandaken Museum on Sunday.
