3. Lutheran Church Memorial
Know O Traveller, within sight of this hill on October 6, 1710, led by the Rev. Joshua Kocherthal and the Rev. Fredrick Hager, there arrived on the east and west shores of Hudson's River nearly three hundred families of refugees of the Palatine region in Europe, who suffered many sorrows in the ravages of war, sickness, poverty, and destitution, yet survived to settle these shores, sustained by their faith in the Lord and the sympathy of Queen Anne of England, whom they came to serve in the reduction of the pine forest for naval stores for Her Majesty's fleet. Do you wish to know more. Seek out their names on this tablet, on the pages of history their deeds. Dedicated to the Memory of these Settlers Saugerties Historical Society June 13, 1998
