Scope of Collection

From 1978 to 1980, the New York State Historic Preservation Office (SHPO) in conjunction with the Orange County's Historian's office took on a project to photograph buildings in the City of Newburgh to determine their historical significance. There were over two thousand structures in the City of Newburgh that were reviewed at that time. Included here are some of the images that were determined to be the most significant & contributing to a potential National Register District at the time. More structures were added to the list in subsequent years. Over time we plan to digitize more of the collection.
