VALATIE:  The Forgotten History
 A Rural Mill Village, Microcosm of America

By Dominick C. Lizzi

The iconic history of the village of Valatie unfolds in this magnificent book by Valatie village historian Dominick Lizzi. Complete with numerous maps and photos, many never before published, this book chronicles the life and times of our small New York villagefrom the earliest native settlements to the dawn of the 21st century.

"Valatie has a fascinating history starting with Native Americans, traders, mill owners, workers, and cotton manufacturers."

Paul Huey, archaeologist, New York State Historic Preservation Office


Lizzi is also author of "Governor Martin H. Glynn: Forgotten Hero", a biography of the Valatie native and former NYS governor. The book illuminates the political milieu of late nineteenth-century and early twentieth-century New York State.
