The Clinton County Historical Association (CCHA) is set to hold its annual Holiday Open House on Saturday, December 7th, and Sunday, December 8th, from 10 am to 3 pm each day.
The Open House, a holiday tradition, provides an opportunity to visit the Museum and find unique gifts for family and friends. The first 25 Open House visitors each day will receive free gifts, one per family.
The Museum shop has three limited-edition keepsake tree ornaments available for purchase. This year’s ornament depicts the Bluff Point Lighthouse on Valcour Island. Ornaments celebrating the Witherill Hotel and Plattsburgh’s Old City Hall are also available while supplies last. All items are limited editions and will not be available again once they are sold out.
Along with many unique and interesting gifts, the Museum has a collection of books about local history by local authors. Two limited-quantity books, Clinton County Memories Volume II and The Plattsburgh Military Reservation, A Pictorial History, by Richard B. Frost and Melissa A. Peck, are still available. Books on the Witherill Hotel and the Royal Savage, as well as several of Jim Millard’s books on local history, will also be for sale. And visitors can browse the gift shop’s used book section for old county history books donated by museum members.
The museum galleries will be open with a media show of Old Plattsburgh photos and a virtual tour of the U.S. Oval running throughout each day.
The Clinton County Historical Association is located at 98 Ohio Avenue, Plattsburgh. For more information, visit their website, or call (518) 561-0340. Museum admission is free and donations are accepted.
