Early 1900’s postcard of Old Marlboro M.E. Church before 1915 Fire

December 16, 2010

According to a 1915 Poughkeepsie Newspaper article entitled, “$45, 000 Fire at Marlboro,” early on Dec. 7, 1915, “the beautiful old Methodist Church building, erected in 1866, was burned to the ground.” Also lost in this fire was the spire of the Presbyterian Church, Marlborough’s new community centre, and the only gymnasium in the town.

This postcard by donated to our library by J. Diorio.
