On the weekend of May 19-20, Historic Hudson participated in NY Heritage weekend http://www.heritageweekend.org Guided tours of the Dr. Oliver Bronson House were offered on both days, highlighting all of the important restoration work completed during Phase I. In all, about 200 people visited the house. I should know, I was one of the tour guides. I met lots of interesting people and did lots of talking.
In addition to seeing the progress of the restoration, many visitors used the opportunity to take photographs. Ghent-based professional photographer Michael Fredericks michaelfredericks.com took this great shot lying on his back in the first floor hall floor using a very wide-angle lens. Everything in the service of his art – Thanks Michael.
