Parks-Bentley in the News
Prints of Harriet Bentley's map of Eastern NY battlefields on sale
Harriet Bentley, the last member of the Bentley family to live at Parks-Bentley Place, was not only an influential area artist, but also a cartographer. Among the many items housed at the historic site are maps that Ms. Bentley created of the area.
The Historical Society of Moreau and South Glens Falls, which has its headquarters at Parks-Bentley, is now offering copies of one of Harriet Bentley’s original area maps for sale. The 24” x 36” sepia-colored map depicts key area locations of the Revolutionary War, including the Old Military Road which was located off a path from Parks-Bentley Place.
The print provides historic notations concerning Revolutionary War and Civil War battle grounds and old trails in Eastern New York. Insets highlight Lake George, Sandy Hill, Ticonderoga, and Fort Edward.
Maps are available for $15 each and those interested should contact the Historical Society at email@example.com. (Arrangements can be made to pick up the maps and shipping is available for an extra fee, depending on location.)
