The Hudson Valley Chesterton Society was founded in 2012. Poughkeepsie is halfway between Albany, NY and New York City on the Hudson River. G.K. Chesterton visited Poughkeepsie twice and arrived at the Poughkeepsie Train Station next to Mahoney’s Pub where we meet monthly. We hosted Dale Ahlquist in September 2013. Dale gave the Chesterton Lecture at Our Lady of Lourdes High School in Poughkeepsie. Other guest speakers are being planned.
