Pittstown Historical Soc. Vintage Clothing Collection Program

The Pittstown Historical Society has planned the following event: A vintage clothing collection belonging to a Pittstown/Hoosick family is the subject of a talk to be held on June 20th at 7:30 PM at the Pittstown Town Hall in Tomhannock (97 Tomhannock Rd, Valley Falls). Selections from a collection of men and women’s clothing and accessories dating from the late 1800s to the early 1900s will be examined and commented on by clothing and textile expert Connie Frisbee Houde. The entire collection was assembled and preserved by descendants of the Baker and Cottrell families. Houde, long-time Curator of Clothing and Textiles at the NYS Museum, has looked extensively at textile and clothing collections across NYS, assisting organizations with the care and identification of their clothing and textile collections. The meeting, which is free and open to the public, is sponsored by the Pittstown Historical Society.

Greetings from Celebrate Stephentown HQ:

Three months from today we’ll be kicking off Celebrate Stephentown 2019, the third annual edition of our town-wide, grassroots festival here in Stephentown, New York.

More than two dozen events are already in the works with our farms, businesses, churches and service organizations all working together to present three special days of family-friendly fun.

We’ll announce more schedule details in June, but in the meantime, please mark the third weekend in August on your calendar and keep your eyes open for future updates.

A great way to find out more about what we do and why is on social media, where we’d be glad to connect with you on FacebookTwitter and Instagram.

Thanks so much for your interest and support; and we can’t wait to show you all the things we love about living here in “the only Stephentown on Earth.”
