A New Book-“Wilmington & the Whiteface Region” coming soon
The chapters of the book are: (1) Agriculture and Industry, (2) Whiteface Mountain, (3) Whiteface Ski Area, (4) Wilmington Notch and AuSable River, (5) Visitor Accommodations, (6) Santa’s Workshop, (7) Community, and (8) Notable People. We have collected and scanned over 2,173 photos donated by many generous people and organizations. We were only able to include 220 photos in the book, making the selection process a difficult task, indeed.
While too numerous to list here, we would like to thank all of those who contributed images and allowed us to use their special collections. While we were unable to use all of photos in the book itself, because of the efforts of many people, we have been able to significantly increase our Wilmington Historical Society collection, adding to our history conservation and making future interpretive displays and presentations possible. We would also like to thank all those who were interviewed and contributed stories and articles for our research. Thanks also to those who spent countless hours selecting images, researching topics, writing captions and editing text.
The members of the Wilmington Historical Society committee who have authored the book are Laurie Bepler, Nancy Cressey, Robert J. Cressey, Gilbert Dyke, Linda Joss-Dyke, Merri C. Peck, Karen Marshall Peters, Robert Peters, Julie Robards, Guy Stephenson and Douglas A. Wolfe. Extreme effort was made to create a pictorial work of interest to residents and tourists alike which accurately represents the story of Wilmington and the Whiteface Region. Included are many surprise photos and facts. Once released, it can be purchased from the Wilmington Historical Society, at local gift shops and stores, and in book outlets such as Amazon.com and Barnes and Noble.
Take a two mile walking tour of Wilmington, New York to understand the history of Wilmington. Wilmington began as an industrial/agricultural town in 1822. By the turn of the 20th century, Wilmington evolved into a tourism based economy. Find out how that happened...
