Livingston Manor saw people march in support of the Red Cross in the early 20th century.
Hurleyville, NY – March is National Red Cross Month, and The Sullivan County Historical Society invites everyone to the opening of the new exhibition at the Sullivan County Museum in Hurleyville, “Remembering the Red Cross.”
