Community Sign Rehabbed

Middleburgh has continued its revitalization program with a total rehab of its community events sign along Main Street near the bridge. Special thanks to Highway Superintendent Dale Nunamann, Dennis Wohlfarth, and Melanie Laraway for making this possible. This includes lighting to make the sign readable 24 hours a day.

Middleburgh Welcomes Architect, Engineer

Middleburgh celebrated several big events on Saturday-- its annual Fall Harvest Festival brought hundreds, there was a dedication service for the deer mural on Main Street, and the welcoming of a new business on Railroad Avenue. Stony Creek Architecture and Hudson River Valley Engineers opened their doors last week and held a ribbon cutting today.

Laraway's Class Cleans Cemetery

Wes Laraway's Schoharie County History Class did another public service, cleaning the "Negro" portion of the Middleburgh Cemetery. The annual event did wonders and was followed by a tour of the cemetery and food provided by the Middleburgh Historical Society.
