Cherry Hill secures grant for conservation

Posted:

ALBANY, N.Y. — Historic Cherry Hill has been awarded funding from the Pine Tree Foundation of New York for conservation of Van Rensselaer family receipt books and related clippings.

Dating from the mid-eighteenth century through the early 20th century, there are 13 receipt books and numerous clippings and recipe fragments.

The two oldest receipt books are most significant, but also in the worst condition.

Once the receipt books are digitized, they will be among the first electronically accessibly collections.
