Did you know violets were among the most popular cut flowers in the late 19th and early 20th centuries?

During that time, this fragrant flower was an integral part of the Hudson Valley economy in New York State. So much so that "Violet Belt" became a nickname in the region, with Rhinebeck, New York earning the title, “Violet Capital of the World.” By 1923, an estimated 40 million violets were being grown in Rhinebeck’s greenhouses.

The newly released summer edition of New York Archives Magazine features an article about the "Violet Capital" by Pomeroy Foundation Historian & Archivist Susan Hughes. Read it here: https://bit.ly/3wCknr4
