Creating a Dutch Colonial Heritage Hudson Valley Tourism Experience with Russell Shorto

Tuesday, March 31
1 PM
Albany Institute of History & Art

Russell Shorto’s June 2019 NY Times article “In the Hudson Valley: A Drive Back in Time” renewed public tourism interest in Dutch colonial history.

New York’s Dutch roots give the state’s history a unique grounding, and they offer historic sites an opportunity with great potential for tourism and economic development. Mr. Shorto and tourism industry partners will join us in brainstorming ideas on how historic sites can create new tourism experiences centered around Dutch Colonial history. 

This Capstone is free to conference attendees but space is limited.
