Cornelia Cotton will speak at the Croton Free Library on Friday, August 11, from 5 -6 p.m. about the exhibit of nineteenth century prints tracing the route of the Old Croton Aqueduct currently on display.
The Old Croton Aqueduct, finished in 1848, is one of the major civil engineering marvels of the nineteenth century. Without the water of the Croton River New York City could not have developed and grown into America's largest city.
The talk will take place in the Gallery of the library, 171 Cleveland Drive, Croton-on-Hudson. The exhibit will be on view until September 7. The prints are from the collection of Cornelia Cotton.
