Locust Grove Diaries

Project Director: Dennis Riley

Source of Materials: Young Family diaries, Locust Grove, Poughkeepsie, NY.


This site will mount diaries of the Young family who lived at the Locust Grove estate from 1895 to 1975. Over 200 diaries from nine family members span over 100 years. Documents will be reproduced as images and initially selected entries will be transcribed. Entries will also be annotated with identifications of people, places and events discussed. Additional material will be digitized, such as period images from the Locust Grove archives and contemporary newspaper coverage, as appropriate.

The following links are to project modules used in brainstorming and developing ideas for a possible digitization project based on archival material:
