For one night only you can see incredible original documents written by Alexander Hamilton, George Washington, Aaron Burr, Thomas Jefferson and more at the History Discovery Night, sponsored by the Scarsdale Historical Society and the Scarsdale Public Library. The event is on Tuesday, June 6th, from 6:30 to 8:30 p.m. at the Scarsdale Public Library, 54 Olmsted Road, Scarsdale, NY 10583.
The exhibit will include one of Hamilton’s most revealing love letters to Elizabeth Schuyler, Hamilton’s letter rallying to defeat Jefferson after Washington declined a third term, and a rare printing of the infamous Reynolds pamphlet—along with highlights from the Library’s local history collection.
You can also bring in your own documents, photographs, books, pamphlets, and other materials (except furniture) related to Scarsdale history to learn about preserving and sharing your items. Hear about local history resources available at the Library and the Historical Society, or ask the experts about preservation, digitization and housing or display options. Meet members of Scarsdale Historical Society, Scarsdale Library’s local history librarian Dan Glauber and historic document expert Seth Kaller.
Free and open to the public.
