BY HAND AND BY HORSE
This exhibit tells the story of farming on the Hurley Flats and the crop transitions that have occurred over the centuries. The tools displayed represent the pre-motorized era. Many of the early Hurley images have never before been displayed in public. Familiar artifacts are on display as well as a rare Dutch sith and its companion tool the mathook.

DO YOU HAVE AN UNREQUITED LOVE OF HISTORY?
DO YOU DREAM OF INTERACTING WITH PEOPLE FROM ALL OVER THE WORLD?
ARE YOUR HIDDEN SALES TALENTS GOING TO WASTE?
If you answered “Yes” to any/all of these questions, the Hurley Heritage Society Museum and Shop has the answer for you!! We are in need of volunteer docents and cashiers to staff our museum on weekends. Uninformed about Hurley’s history? No problem! Our training staff will be happy to supply you with information about our village, our exhibit, and our many community activities. In the shop, our experienced staff will acquaint you with the merchandise and shop procedures. Limited mobility? Again, no problem! Our museum is all on one floor, and our cashiers are comfortably seated. Reluctant to give up an entire Saturday or Sunday? This, too, is no problem! Docent and cashier shifts are only 3 hours long. Yes, the pay is nil, but the true payoff is your satisfaction in supporting Hurley and its heritage and, maybe, making a new friend or two. To join our team, contact our co-ordinators:

RAMBLE THROUGH HURLEY'S
Tour Hurley’s historic burial grounds, a unique piece of Hudson Valley history where the earliest graves date back to the 1600s when Hurley was the Dutch settlement of Nieu Dorp. Hurley’s haunted history will be told through the stories of its prominent citizens, witches, and an axe murderer who are (and in one strange case, not) buried here.
September 20, 2015 (rain or shine)
Tour starts at the Hurley Heritage Society Museum on Main St.
Admission: $5, children under 12 free
This event is on uneven, unpaved terrain; please wear appropriate shoes and dress for the weather.
