Imagine traveling to all five boroughs in a single day and taking in historic sites and museums along way. That's just a regular work day for Lindsey Mulholland, and we caught up with her during a recenty visit to NYC's living history village.
She is also working closely with the Theodore Roosevelt Birthplace National Historic Site, where she has created programs for elementary school students that allow them to experience the museum exhibits in a new and more tactile way.
Mulholland, along with fellow members of the Daughters of the American Revolution (DAR), recently visited Historic Richmond Town to photograph some of the historic homes and pastoral scenes. She documented the fieldstone walls of the Christopher House and examined the Delftware tiles in the Guyon-Lake-Tysen farmhouse.
Mulholland, who publishes as “Lindsey Loves History,” is a NYC-based volunteer, photographer, genealogist, and historian. Her own family research has taken her back to the earliest settlements in the United States, including Jamestown, New Amsterdam, and Plymouth. Because of this research, Lindsey has become an active member of the Knickerbocker Chapter of the Daughters of the American Revolution. She loves helping individuals trace their roots, especially when it leads to lesser-known portions of history.
Her current project has her exploring hidden rural and natural gems around New York City. She has a vast following of historians, genealogists, and outdoor enthusiasts who enjoy reading about her travels.
