Grange Lyceum: When Men and Mountains Meet

Our Wild Home: Six talks on the history and place of the Adirondacks

Lyceums flourished in the United States from the mid-19th century and were important in the development of adult education. Lecturers, musicians, singers and readers traveled the “lyceum circuit,” going from town to town to entertain, speak, or debate. The current Lyceum Series at the Grange continues this tradition with lectures and programs of interest to the community. (Whallonsburg Grange)

Settling the Wilderness: When Men and Mountains Meet with historian and author Glenn Pearsall

When Men and Mountains Meet focuses on the critical settlement period of the Adirondacks, mostly form 1790 to 1820. Immediately after the American Revolution, the Adirondacks became a land of opportunity for businessmen and land speculators. Each enterprise began with great optimism, and most ended in despair and human tragedy. The author of this new book will look at how and why this was such a challenging place for settlements.
