The Schenectady County Historical Society (SCHS) has announced opening plans for the 1731 Brouwer House, its newly acquired Stockade property. The Brouwer House was donated to the SCHS by the Kindl family, who previously resided in the historic home.
On Tuesday, September 26 at 4 pm, SCHS, together with the Capital Region Chamber of Commerce, will host a ribbon-cutting ceremony and open house at the Brouwer House. Light refreshments and beverages will be served, and tours of the home and garden will be offered.
The community is invited to join in celebrating this exciting acquisition and in ushering in a new chapter in Schenectady preservation, tourism, and education.
Earlier this year, the Kindl family donated the historic Brouwer House to the Schenectady County Historical Society, as part of a long-time wish of the recently deceased Catherine Kindl.
The Schenectady County Historical Society is a private, not-for-profit organization founded in 1905 with the mission to share stories, inspire dialogue, and encourage understanding of the history, people, and cultures of Schenectady County.
The Brouwer House is located at 14 North Church Street, Schenectady.
