Warrensburg area residents are encouraged to submit their doll houses or “room boxes” for consideration for the upcoming holiday exhibit at the Warrensburgh Historical Museum. The juried exhibit will run from December 7 through January 15.
Due to varied doll house sizes and museum space considerations at the museum, the number accepted will be limited.
Submission applications must be received by Nov. 1. Such forms may be obtained at the Museum or at the Warrensburg Town Hall, or by phoning the exhibit’s curator, Delbert Chambers, at 623-3514. At least one good photograph of the doll house or room box should be included with the form. Forms and photos may be sent to the Society, P. O. Box 441, Warrensburg, NY 12885, delivered to the Museum (see below) or submitted online to firstname.lastname@example.org.
Acceptance will be based on age, uniqueness, quality, furnishings, whether it is hand-made or factory produced, and its historic importance.
The Museum will arrange for pick-up and return of the selected items, if desired. All entries will be returned following the close of the show on Jan. 15. For details, call Chambers at 623-3514 or museum director Steve Parisi, at 623-2207.
Graveyard Walks, Dinner with Dead set
The Warrensburgh Historical Society is holding its 13th annual series of Graveyard Walks and Dinner With the Dead featuring actors and history enthusiasts portraying noted townspeople from past eras who are buried in the 160-year-old Warrensburg Cemetery.
To be portrayed are people from before Warrensburg became a town to a time when a Warrensburg aviator became world famous. All to be brought to life by local amateur actors are: a member of family who came here before William Bond who was supposedly the first settler, a woman who hosted the first town meeting, a woman who left a great gift to Warrensburg, a man who left town at an early age but left a legacy that stands today, and a man who helped found the Presbyterian Church.
