Works of Art
In addition to The Rondout Bridge (shown in the previous section), the HHS Permanent Collection preserves several works by Emily DuBois Hoysradt. The first one below depicts some furnishing items that Emily donated to the museum, as well. The mantel clock is said to have been passed down from Emily’s maternal great-grandfather, Josiah Bruyn DuBois, who ran a mercantile business, in partnership with Josiah Hasbrouck, at the house we now call the Jean Hasbrouck House. In 1822, Josiah Bruyn DuBois built a Federal-style brick home in Libertyville, west of the Wallkill River. There he lived with his second wife, Catherine Winfield (Emily’s great-grandmother), and raised his family.
The following works of art are part of the Haviland-Heidgerd Historical Collection, Elting Memorial Library, New Paltz, New York.
