The meeting is open to the public and we welcome all interested parties.
Agendas are available prior to the meetings. Minutes are available following approval.
Do you have interesting historical artifacts in your possession that are somehow connected to the Town of Poughkeepsie's past? Would you be willing to show those things and perhaps talk about them with us-Preservation Commission members? At a recent meeting of the Preservation Commission, a town couple came to us and showed/shared a box of family heirlooms that were astonishing in our collective opinion. We eagerly anticipate hearing from those of you who value local history and are willing to share your personal historical collection with us. Interested parties can email the Town Historian.
We on the Preservation Commission are looking to establish a file of Town of Poughkeepsie residents who may have interesting biographies and would be willing to share that information with your Preservation Commission. Please send us what you have with as much complete information as possible. The person's name-the event or events of interest-How did this change things. We would like to set up files of said people to be used for future celebrations such as Black History Month, Women's History Month, and other significant events. It is the intent of the Preservation Commission that all information in this proposed archive will be user submitted.
Submissions can be either sent to:
We are seeking a slogan for our Town Preservation Committee. Are you in favor of one of these, or do you have a favorite of your own? Please let us know.
