Didn’t get to the 2016

Forgot to get a tour booklet or postcards?

Tour Booklets

Professionally produced and printed, this year’s 40 page Reid & Park Hills booklet – all images and information, no commercial advertisements – is well on its way to becoming another collector’s item.

Don’t be disappointed – when they’re gone, they’re history.



The 2016 sixth annual HAL series of six Amsterdam postcards includes an antique reprint of the Kelloggs Dam with its 1902 footbridge, a rare 1930′s photo of the Amsterdam, Chuctanunda & Northern Railroad in operation, and four new views of the former St. John the Baptist Church, the Vrooman Ave. School,  Sanford’s 1st Ave. “Mill Canyon”, and the Paper Mill Dam spanning the Chuctanunda Creek.

In the late 19th and early 20th centuries there were literally hundreds of postcards of Amsterdam printed. These cards were a source of civic pride and showed friends, relatives, and acquaintances worldwide that “this is Amsterdam”. Few cards of Amsterdam were produced in recent years until the Historic Amsterdam League initiated production of annual sets in 2011 in conjunction with the neighborhood tour programs: the HAL series now includes 36 cards, and will continue to grow through the coming years. Pick up a set of the 2016 cards to start or add to your HAL collection, or an individual card or two to send out into the world and once again announce that “this is Amsterdam”.
