Albany and the Hudson River Valley region of New York State proudly celebrated a significant anniversary in 2009. That year marks the 400th anniversary of our European founding by Dutch explorer Henry Hudson. It was a wonderful opportunity to explore and to celebrate the Dutch heritage of the Hudson Valley with special events on the Hudson River, along the shores of the river and at historic sites throughout the region. Join us as we revisit our past and share a future of continued discovery.
