Living History Day

Held on the first Sunday in May, a free event featuring historic re-enactors, mansion tours, music, vendors, and pony rides and a petting zoo. There are vendors from local farms and shops offering many unique and handmade goods as well. This event typically sees more than 200 visitors to the Ten Broeck Mansion grounds during the event.

Summer Archeology Camp

Open to students entering 5th-10th grade in the fall, this week-long camp is conducted by professional archaeologists from Hartgen Archaeology Associates. Campers conduct a real archeological dig and clean, catalog, and display their discoveries. Camp includes a field trip to the New York State Museum for a behind-the-scenes look at the archaeology department. ACHA offers scholarships to low income campers. Information and applications will be available in the spring.
