Village of Saugerties officials are looking to restore plaques to a section of Seamon Park that honors Maude Washburn and the Camp Fire Girls that were stolen a decade or more ago.
Trustee Donald Hackett said officials presume the brass plaques were stolen anywhere between 10-15 years ago. And they are not sure what they even said, as they have not been able to find any documentation regarding the plagues in village records. He estimates the plaques, which he only realized were missing during a recent walk through the park on U.S. Route 9W, could date back to the 1930s.
Hackett said at Monday’s Village Board meeting that officials have enlisted village historian Marjorie Block to look through the village archives to see if she can turn up any info on them and especially what they say so they can recreate new plaques.
“Hopefully they can get this done,” Hackett said.
