Historic Cherry Hill Murder Subject of Program

The murder at Cherry Hill is the subject of a special local history program this month at APL. Local historian Jane Ladouceur explores the 1827 murder of John Whipple at the Cherry Hill Mansion in Albany’s South End. The players in this deadly drama, Whipple’s wife and her lover, acted out a tale of love and lust that resulted in two sensational trials and Albany’s last public hanging.

You have two opportunities to attend the program, which is free and open to the public:

Saturday, Oct. 6, at 1 pm at the Main Library

Wednesday, Oct. 10, at 2 pm at the Pine Hills Branch

The talks are funded by the New York Council for the Humanities and presented by Historic Cherry Hill. For more information, please call Historic Cherry Hill at 434-4791.
