Tom Chapin Goes on Record for Piermont History

PIERMONT, N.Y. -- It was the height of America’s industrial revolution and Piermont was in the thick of it.

In 1901, M.R. Williams, president of the Chicago Coated Board Company, erected Piermont’s first paper mill. The village had been in decline ever since the Erie Railroad’s terminus was relocated to Jersey City. When the factory came to town, Piermont was instantly transformed. For the next 80 years, it was defined by its deep blue-collar community.

To mark the historical event, “The Piermont PaperMill: Stories From The Factory”, narrated by Tom Chapin, will be premiered March 10 at Piermont Historical Society’s Annual Dinner Dance.

Bonnie Chapin will join her husband as honorary co-chair at the “Speakeasy”. Roaring 20s flappers will dance the Charleston and true to a real Speakeasy, alcohol will flow.

“You bet, I’m a real history buff," Chapin said when asked to narrate the documentary about his hometown.

In 2015, Chapin narrated “Last Stop USA… Piermont during WWII”.

Discounted tickets (save $10) may be purchased up to Feb. 28.

Attire: 1920s-inspired or casual chic.
