Backtracks in Time: Bob Knighton (Audio)
Apr 25, 2019
In this broadcast, host Jack Sencabaugh talks with Bob Knighton, president of the Greene Land Trust, about the history and ongoing restoration of the Willows, an 18th-century farmhouse in the town of Athens. Listed on the National and State Registers of Historic Places, the Trust acquired the house in October 2009 and uses the house to support environmental education on the surrounding land owned by the Department of Environmental Conservation (NYSDEC) and at the nearby Cohotate Preserve. The show features interviews with local historians, longtime residents with stories to tell, and archival recorded material.
