From April 18 until November 15 the George Way Collection of Dutch Artifacts is presented at the DePew House.
From Holland to Here examines the Dutch heritage of the Town of Orangetown by way of the collection of George Way, America’s premier collector of Dutch 17th century art. On loan will be a stunning display of paintings, miniatures, silver, brass, delftware, prints, drawings and furniture. The collection significantly contributes to the backstory of who
the Dutch were in the 1680’s, (particularly the Blauvelt descendants and neighbors of Gerrit Hendricksen) when a group of Dutch farmers left their ‘Boweries’ off Maiden Lane in Manhattan to settle here in Orangetown.
Spirited, adventurous and descended from a highly developed culture, these earliest residents got out of Manhattan. They re-settled their families maintaining their language and traditions away from the scrutiny of the English. Join for an extraordinary opportunity to examine the background of a people who, through their efforts, have distinguished Orangetown as a place rich in history.
