Amsterdam Icons 2019, HAL’s annual  full color 12-month calendar, is available at the locations listed below and by mail directly from HAL


The North Chuctanunda Creek

The Historic Amsterdam League is pleased to once again offer an original 12 month wall- size (11″ x 17″) calendar for the coming year, Amsterdam Icons 2019, the eighth in our annual calendar series.  Amsterdam Icons 2019 explores the North Chuctanunda Creek, the reason Amsterdam exists.  If it were not for the creek, Albert Vedder would not have settled here and built his mills.  Veddersberg, and then Amsterdam, if they began at all, would not have been those of the past and present we now know.  Through color and classic B&W photos and illustrations, Icons 2019 presents the varying faces of “The Chuck” -  its exploitation that made our city an industrial leader, its recreational use, its natural power and beauty, its recognition and rebirth through the creation of the new North Chuctanunda Creek Trail and Greenway.  Scattered throughout the monthly date listings, in addition to the usual holidays and observances, once again are important, entertaining, and often little known dates from local history – the first broadcast by WCSS, the opening of the Amsterdam Free Library, the commissioning of the USS Amsterdam


Amsterdam Icons 2019 is available from:

  • The Book Hound – 16 Main Street, Amsterdam
  • The Walter Elwood Museum Gift Shop – 100 Church Street, Amsterdam
  • The Amsterdam Free Library – 28 Church Street, Amsterdam

Calendars will be on sale while supplies last – but don’t delay, some year’s Icons have sold out by New Year’s. Take a year long journey with HAL as we “Follow the Chuck”, and along the way discover when to set your clocks ahead, that ice storms can happen in July, and enough local trivia to win a friendly bet or two.
