About the event
Ten years ago John DiDomizio, lifetime member of the Wappingers Historical Society, entertained us with his presentation on the history of Clinton Point and Stoneco covering the time period from 1609 to 1919. In a new presentation, he will present some of his older material as well as his latest findings about the stone quarry along the banks of the Hudson River and what preceded it -- the Italian immigrant community once known as Stoneco.
