COXSACKIE — The Bronck Museum near Coxsackie is offering “Eighteenth Century Green” the first of its Summer Sunday Series of special events on June 20. Nearly every news program today carries a story about the interaction of people and the environment. Anyone could be forgiven for thinking that this is a relatively modern phenomena, but of course it isn’t. The clear cutting of the eastern primeval forests, the near extinction of the beaver inland and the majestic whales off the Atlantic coast was nearly complete by the time America gained its Independence. Keeping house exposed both adults and children to a series of what we would characterize as toxic chemicals. The production of linen cloth caused fish kill in streams. At the other extreme people in the 1700s recycled nearly everything. Only when a ceramic was too broken to be useful for holding anything, or glass completely shattered was it sadly added to the garbage heap under the privy or the window. It would be a considerable challenge for even the most diligent modern recycler to approach the scope of recycling common in the 1700s. The story of how and why earlier Americans practiced what we have come to call the green lifestyle is a surprising and cautionary tale.
The program will begin at 1:30 p.m. on the museum’s east lawn weather permitting or in the museum’s large well ventilated Dutch Barn if necessary. The speaker for the afternoon will be Shelby Mattice, Curator of the Bronck Museum. Adult admission for this event is $8; children and members of the Greene County Historical Society $4.
