In a statement released by Governor Cuomo's office today, twenty-three properties are being recommended to the State and National Register of Historic Places.  Four of the sites are in the Hudson Valley.

According to the governor's office, the nominations reflect the striking diversity of New York State's history.  Locally the George W. Bellows House in Woodstock, Kingston City Almhouse, Hyde Park's New Guinea Community Site and Kingston's John H. and Sarah Trumbull House are being recommended.

Governor Cuomo said "these nominations will help communities across this great state preserve the historic landmarks and sites that shaped New York's rich heritage." Registers listings can assist property owners in revitalizing byuildings, making them eligible for various public preservation programs and services, such as matching state grants and state and federal historic rehabilitation tax credits.
