Immigrants in the Slate Valley

Thursday, November 6, 2014, 6:30pm
Slate was first discovered in the Slate Valley 175 years ago, and ever since, the industry has been powered by waves of immigrants seeking to forge new lives in America. Join Slate Valley Museum Coordinator of Education Bob Isherwood as he explores the many immigrant groups who came to the Slate Valley during this lecture and discussion. Through a lecture, discussion, and slideshow presentation, Isherwood will highlight the region’s immigrant history and some of the strategies that the Slate Valley Museum has used to capture, preserve, and share their personal stories.

The Slate Valley is roughly defined as a 30 mile long and six mile wide area along the New York/Vermont border extending from Fair Haven, Vermont in the north to Salem, NY in the

south. While Cambridge falls south of this region, the same railroad system that transported slate also serviced Cambridge. The talk will include a brief discussion of this shared transportation. For more information about this program, Please call the Cambridge Public Library at 677-2443.
