The Jacob T. Walden House
34 North Montgomery Street, Walden, New York

Our Society is a nonprofit organization devoted to the preservation of
local history and is chartered by the State of New York.

 
 


Welcome to the rich history of the Jacob T. Walden House located in Walden, Town of Montgomery, Orange County, NY (part of Ulster County until 1798).

 

 



Beautiful artwork by former Waldenite, Harry Lee. We have featured some of his work before and have others for future posting, but these three special because they are of Walden.




And the Winner Is... Patrick McGorman!
This lovely quilt, made and donated by the Country Quilters Guild of Pine Bush, NY,
was on display for our raffle at the Josephine-Louise Public Library in 2016.
The winning ticket was drawn at a meeting on December 7th--Congratulations!!!
Thank You
to all who supported us by buying raffle tickets!

Membership is open to anyone interested in preserving local history. We encourage members to invite friends to join too. Donations are always welcome and are tax deductible.
