These images, courtesy of the Norton family of Milan, who themselves are part of the Fulton, Gallagher and other well known founding families of Milan, are being simply gathered here for starters. The evolving project that will include research and writing to better understand how families lived, worked and played here in prior centuries. Most of these images are in Milan, some are in Red Hook (especially Upper Red Hook) and a few are beyond that. We will be adding more detail over time so please return to check out progress! Thank you to the Norton family for sharing these powerful and moving insights into our shared past.
