Millerton loves a festival

MILLERTON — The lights were strung, the fire trucks were manned and ready,  festooned with lights, holiday decorations and blow-up Santas, and Main Street was cordoned off. 

Little Red Bird Studio

A cozy second-floor studio at 24 Main Street in Millerton, bedecked with thank-you drawings from young artists, is where artist Julianna Kreta creates, sells and nurtures whimsical, finely crafted objects, and runs workshops for all ages and skill levels. She also has an extensive online store with lovely items too numerous to mention.

Oblong Books

Oblong Books is an independent bookstore with locations in Millerton and Rhinebeck, N.Y. The store in Millerton was established in 1975 and has continued to be the go-to small town book seller in Dutchess County. The shop remains a local hub for book lovers and a cultural center in the community.

The farm growing tomorrow’s farmers

MILLERTON —  Rock Steady Farm, a cooperative farm in Millerton, is exemplary within the agricultural landscape for many reasons, and its fundraising ability is one of them: In 2023, it raised $650,000, largely from grants.

A gifting tradition changes hands

MILLERTON  — After three decades of running Adopt-a-Family, which supplies holiday gifts to families in need, Stacey Moore is passing the program to the village’s North East Community Center (NECC), to be run by Family Program Director Jessica Raymond.
