100 Years Ago

Ron Vincent recently donated historic photographs, old post cards, and more than a few documents to the Roeliff Jansen Historical Society. The photographs were taken by Ron’s grandfather, Palmer Vincent (1882-1965), who lived in a house that once stood on Route 23 between the Mount Washington House and the Hillsdale Public Library. Palmer was Hillsdale’s chief railway postal clerk for 40 years and also served as the Town Historian. You can view some of the wonderful photographs from the Vincent collection here.
