Halcottsville exhibit at Middletown Town Hall

A new exhibit, focusing on the community of Halcottsville, is now on display at the Middletown Town Hall on Route 28 between Margaretville and Arkville.

Organized by Town Historian Shirley Davis using materials submitted by area residents, the exhibit in the vintage Bussy Store display case includes a stamp from the former Halcottsville Water Company, calendars from Griffin’s and Hubbell’s stores, a souvenir seashell from “Halcottville,” and many photos and postcards such as Lake Wawaka, Hubbell’s cove, and road construction between Kelly Corners and Halcottsville.

The display is a follow-up to the 100th birthday celebration of the Halcottsville Fire Department which was held with great fanfare in September.

It can be seen at the Town Hall weekdays during regular business hours through mid-December.
