Annual Progressive Dinner
July 28. 4:00 - 7:30 PM
Hearty appetizers, entrees, salads, and wine will be served at "The Tannery," a spectacularly designed home (top right). The waters of the Landsman's Kill were the reason this site functioned industrially as a woolen mill and later as a tannery before it was surveyed in 1795 for owner George Ring, the first to make the site his home. Subsequent homeowners in the 19th century included Henry Hill and John Tompkins, and by 1899, the owner of the neighboring Schuyler House, Dr. George Miller, found it so attractive, he made it a part of his estate, known as The Grove. Today The Tannery retains its integrity as a separate and tranquil site nestled in a bend in the ancient stream.
Dessert will follow at Sepascot Farm. The house is a Hudson River bracketed Italianate style. Brackets are used in pairs all around the fascia of the house and also around the porches and the roof of the three-sided bay window. The farm was 144 Acres when Robert Prosper purchased it and it remained in that configuration until 1986. It has belonged to descendants of Leslie Weaver since 1906. Leslie's great granddaughter and her husband, Susan and Christopher Fitzgerald now farm approximately 100 acres providing lean beef, pork, chicken and lamb meat as well as eggs, milk, goat milk and cheese at their farm stand. At both sites you will have the opportunity to visit the house and barns.
