Luis Moises Gomez: Three Centuries of History in New York’s Hudson Valley (Zoom)Wednesday May/24/2023 @ 7:00 pm - 8:00 pm
In this virtual presentation, historian and lecturer Alex Prizgintas will discuss Luis Moises Gomez, a Jewish refugee who was a member of New York City’s Shearith Israel Congregation. Expanding his business interests northward in 1716, Gomez purchased land in Marlboro, New York, where he occupied this important intermediary role between local residents and the expanding market revolution. Gomez’s position in this changing society, as well as the three centuries of history endured by his Hudson Valley property known today as the Gomez Mill House, are extraordinary lenses through which socioeconomic and cultural advancements in the Hudson Valley can be observed.
