ABOUT THE BORSCHT BELT HISTORICAL MARKER PROJECT:
The Borscht Belt Historical Marker Project is a new group dedicated to identifying and commemorating locations significant to the history of the Borscht Belt, a celebrated era in American Jewish life. The project aims to fill a gap in local history, storytelling, and historic preservation by creating a large-scale historic marker trail complimented by various programming and a self-guided audio-driving tour that will traverse Sullivan and parts of Ulster Counties.
