National Geographic November 1941 story on the historic black dirt region of Orange County, New York

The black dirt region of Orange County, New York, was featured in a very large article in the November 1941 issue. Here is that article uploaded with each page being an individual photo.

On the last page you see an older lady cutting up a potato to make seed … that woman is my dad’s grandmother, my great grandmother.

Enjoy!
