IMAGES OF AMERICA:

Take a trip back in time with the publication of Images of America: Blooming Grove and Washingtonville!

Join him on a visual journey through the past and discover the people, places, and events he discovered over the course of writing his first published book, the first to be written about our area in nearly 30 years!

The book is available for $21.99. Copies of the book can be purchased direct from the publisher, as well as Amazon.
