Museum Schedules a “Christmas at the Fort”
The Fort Plain Museum will hold its annual “Christmas at the Fort” holiday open house on Saturday December 3rd from 10 am – 6 pm. Holiday punch and cookies will be available and the museum’s gift shop will be open for Christmas shoppers. Crafters and artisans will be showing unique handmade gift items for sale. Weather permitting Santa’s Smith & Rebell Sleigh will be on exhibit for family photo opportunities.
Local authors will be on hand to autograph their books. Also again this year an exhibit of original Christmas Cards by artist and historian Nelson Greene will be featured. Greene produced Christmas Cards throughout the 1940’s for local industrialist George Duffy as well as for himself. Also on display will be several temporary exhibits such as 300 years of illumination, including several colonial lighting pieces.
The holiday gathering is a chance for friends, neighbors and museum volunteers to celebrate the season and talk about local history. For additional information or to become a regular volunteer at the museum please call 518-774-5669 or visit us on Facebook.
