The Albany County Historical Association’s annual Living History Day has been set for Sunday, May 5th, from noon to 4 pm at the Ten Broeck Mansion in Albany. This year’s theme, “Albany in the Roarin’ 20s,” will explore the history of Albany County through the decade’s arts, culture, and historic happenings.
Living History Day features live demonstrations, re-enactors, displays from historical organizations and community groups, kids craft activities, local vendors, live music of the era, pony rides and a petting zoo, sheep-shearing, tours of the Ten Broeck Mansion, and more. The ACHA’s new exhibit for 2019, “Spirited: Prohibition in Albany,” will be open at the King’s Place Gallery at 29 N. Swan St.
Trolley rides between the Ten Broeck Mansion and Cherry Hill’s History Fair event will be provided by the CDTA between 1 and 3 pm.
