Founded in 1924, the Dutch Settlers Society of Albany strives to perpetuate the memory of the individuals who settled in the greater Albany area during the Dutch colonial period of 1624 - 1664. The Society is charged with collecting and preserving information pertaining to the early history of Albany (Fort Orange, later Beverwijck) including genealogical records of the settlers and their descendants.
Guest Speaker: The Honorable Kathy M. Sheehan
Mayor of the City of Albany
Many people associate us with the Albany Tulip Festival and the ceremonial "Scrubbing of State Street" and participation in those events is one way that we work to share Albany's rich Dutch heritage
