On Friday, July 1, the Roeliff Jansen Historical Society will open its Bash Bish summer exhibit with a preview reception at 6 pm. The exhibit celebrates the rich history of Bash Bish – the Roe Jan region’s single biggest attraction for more than 150 years. Each year, an estimated 200,000 visitors make the hike to the falls to enjoy the natural wonder set against the cycle of the seasons. Famous visitors to the falls have included Herman Melville, Henry Longfellow, Henry David Thoreau, John Frederick Kensett and even baseball legend, Babe Ruth. More here.
