From “Dryden’s Homestead Heritage Fair Day Honors Rural Heritage”

The Southworth Homestead became the headquarters of the Dryden Town Historical Society in 2012. It had been the home of Dryden’s prominent Southworth family since 1836. Rebecca Southworth Simpson, a founding member of the society and the last member of the Southworth family to live in the house, left the property to the society in her will with the stipulation that it continued to be cherished and open to the community.
