Join PHM for an encore presentation by world-renowned architect, Joseph Pell Lombardi. The lecture will be an explanation of how and why Valhalla Highlands came into being and its cultural and historical significance to the nation. Lombardi will share a brief history of the North Highlands from the late 18th century to the early 20th century, followed by the history of Valhalla Highlands. He will also share his personal experiences in the Lake Valhalla community during the 1940s and 1950s, including the impact of World War II. Joe has been a part-time resident of Philipstown for most of his life including, for many years, having owned the James H. Haldane House on Paulding Avenue in Cold Spring.
