Welcome

They say that natural landmarks, like historic landmarks, tell local stories. Bash Bish has an alluring star-power and draws more than 200,000 visitors every year. It has also been the site for countless marriage proposals, actual weddings, and ordinary family picnics. This summer’s Bash Bish Falls exhibit in Copake Falls drew more visitors than any other in recent years. On Sunday, October 9, join the Roeliff Jansen Historical Society for a final look at the exhibit and a panel discussion. At 2 pm at the museum. More.
