Thank you to All of the Volunteers that Welcomed Visitors to the Museum to Share our History!
Before We Ring in the New Year let's have some Fun at the Museum
Enjoy Refreshments including mulled cider by the Fire in the c.1732 Kitchen
Hear the poem "A Visit from St. Nicholas" and the story of the controversy over who wrote it.
It was likely written here in Dutchess County!
