CHANGING TIMES by Nell B.S. Peck

Changing Times

Originally published in 1966, and reprinted by the Roeliff Jansen Historical Society in 2016 

This book, originally published in 1966, was reprinted by the Roeliff Jansen Historical Society in 2016. This slim volume of personal recollections is brimming with factual and anecdotal history about the village of Copake, New York. Nell Peck, who knew the Copake area as it had remained since the late 19th century, recounts the numerous and sweeping changes that came to the tiny hamlet by the mid-20th century. Join Nell Peck as she revisits the time of ice houses, tin and wagon shops, the coming of electricity in 1920, and to when “the first automobile I ever saw passed through the village and by the school one day when we children were having recess.”  “Changing Times” is a lively first-hand journey back in both memory and in time in a small rural town.
