The Borscht Belt Historical Marker Project
The Borscht Belt Historical Marker Project unveiled its first historical marker today at the Ethelbert B Crawford Library in Monticello.
The project commemorates locations significant to the history of the Borscht Belt, a celebrated era in American Jewish life and a Catskills legacy.
Speakers included founder Marisa Scheinfeld, Assemblywoman Aileen Gunther, County Historian John Conway, and Zack Kutsher, grandson of the owners of Kutsher’s.
More historical markers will be revealed, for a total of 20 planned in iconic locations throughout the Sullivan Catskills.
