  • Historic Photo Exhibit Highlights Stephen Cranes Local Connections

    Continuing to promote local history as part of the community’s tourism enhancement goals, the Port Jervis Free Library announces the opening of a permanent photographic exhibit on famed 1890s author, Stephen Crane.

    Conceived, sponsored, and curated by local Crane authority, Robert Eurich, owner of the community-oriented PortJervisNY.com website, the exhibit primarily uses photos from the archives of the Minisink Valley Historical Society to tell Crane’s story though images of Port Jervis as he would have known it.

    In commemoration of Crane’s 145th birthday, the exhibit opened to the public on November 1, 2016 and is available for viewing anytime during the library’s normal business hours.
