PLATTSBURGH — Join the Clinton County Historical Association (CCHA) on the opening day of its newest exhibit, “Compliments of the Season.” Seasonal artifacts from CCHA’s collection will be on display to celebrate the community’s favorite winter pastimes, including leisure and recreational activities, clothing styles, Victorian postcards, traditional holiday decorations, rare winter photographs and much more. We would like to invite members of the community to participate in the exhibit with their own family memories and treasures.
Commenting on the exhibit, Director, Melissa Peck states, “At the Museum, we are continually trying to develop exhibits that can relate to our community today. As winter dawns on the County, our Exhibits Committee, comprised of Geri Favreau, Helen Nerska, Julie Dowd, Roger Black and Luke Cyphers, thought it would be only fitting to create an exhibit that can represent the wintertime traditions held with residents, both past and present.” Peck goes on to say, “It is important to remember the changes in the seasons and how they affect our community, traditions and history. This exhibit is intended to highlight the evolution and continuation of these traditions in the County’s history.”
Association members can enjoy a sneak preview of the exhibit on Saturday, Dec. 7. The exhibit will be open to the public starting on Saturday, Dec. 14 through Saturday, Feb. 15.
The Museum is open Wednesday through Saturday from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. For more information, visit www.clintoncountyhistorical.org or call 518-561-0340.
Museum admission is $5 for adults, $3 for seniors, and $2 for students. Members enjoy free admission.
