In honor of Earth Day, a tulip poplar will be dedicated and planted on the courthouse lawn at 5 pm. This event is in observance of Earth Day and the ecological wealth of our county. This event is part of our 200th Birthday Bash Celebration.
After the planting ceremony, the Museum of Fine Art will unveil a portrait of Joseph Hamilton Daveiss inside the courthouse. The county is named for Major Joseph Hamilton Daveiss (a recording error in the State Clerk’s office accounts for the spelling which has never been corrected), the United States Attorney who unsuccessfully prosecuted Aaron Burr.
A reception will follow. All are invited to attend and participate in this special event celebrating our 200th Birthday!!
