MILLBROOK — One of the best things about the programs at the Millbrook Historical Society is that many people, places and things have not changed all that much during the past 200 years or more. 
This idea was again reinforced when Alison Meyer presented a January program on the Dutchess Turnpike Company, founded in 1804. Along with some wonderful stories, there were maps and tracings of original maps on display from the county, probably off county property for the very first time.
