Our Annual Membership Meeting will be held Thursday May 16, 2024, 7:00 p.m., at the Cedar Hill Schoolhouse Museum, 1003 River Road, Selkirk.

A short business meeting will be followed by a time to enjoy the company of BHA members, taste a treat from the dessert buffet and enjoy the museum exhibits.  This is also an excellent opportunity for new members to meet our officers and trustees and to learn more about volunteer activities.  Please R.S.V.P. so we know how many brownies to make!

Lecture Series 

April 17, 2024, Robb Haberman: Writing in the Service of His Country: The Revolutionary War Memoir of James Selkirk

Haberman will discuss the manuscript memoir alongside a local patriot association, a regimental orderly book, and Selkirk’s own discharge papers. In doing so, he will show how these varied primary sources illuminate the political affiliations, wartime duties and post-war hardships of Selkirk, and how they also shed light on the collective experiences of enlisted soldiers who served in the New York Line during the Revolutionary conflict.
