Explore Mohonk Preserve

Introducing Town of Ulster Library passes to Mohonk Preserve! That means if you check out a pass, you can get in for free! You just need to go to one of the trailheads or visitor center to get your entry wristband. What’s more, we also have museum passes to the Hudson River Maritime Museum.

And we’re not the only ones with museum passes. If you go to our online catalog and search museum pass, you can see all of the passes in the library system.

You can find HeritageQuest by clicking on the Stop Searching Start Finding link on our website and selecting the History and Genealogy tab at the top of the page, or by clicking here. Then, simply enter your library card number and click connect to start exploring. 

Once on the site you can search for information about your relatives by looking through a variety of records, including US and Canadian censuses, Revolutionary War Era pensions, and the Freedman’s Bank. Information such as your relative’s full name, nationality, place and time of birth can be entered to narrow down your search. With some hunting around, you can discover what lies at the roots of your family tree!

The site covers topics from engineering to storytelling and presents information for all age groups. For educators, the site provides activities, lessons, and opportunities for professional development.
