On Sunday, September 27, 2015, the New Castle Historical Society and Horace Greeley House Museum will host a children’s education program to explore the fascinating history of the printing press and its great influence on society.

The program, which is co-sponsored by the Chappaqua Children’s Book Festival (one of the largest children’s book festivals in the metropolitan region), will provide participants with the opportunity to learn about the history of the printing press, Horace Greeley’s New York Tribune, journal writing in the 19th century, and about Chappaqua’s many own children’s book authors. Program participants will have the opportunity to see one of Greeley’s actual type stands. Participants will also have the chance to use mini-printing presses to make their own book pages to take home.

This free program will be held at the Horace Greeley House (100 King St. Chappaqua, NY 10514) on Sunday, September 27, 2015 from 2 pm – 4pm. The program is recommended for children up to 10 years old.

Downton Chappy – Costumes of the Downton Abby Era

Our new exhibit  features costumes from the Society’s extensive collection and is based on the popular TV series, Downton Abbey.   Lady Grantham and her daughters always wore the latest elegant fashions of the 1920s and 30s.  The soft fabrics, lavish beading and embroidery on their dresses help set the story tone. Happily, we have similar dresses here in Chappaqua.  We have a stunning satin and lace wedding gown as well as dresses suitable for receiving guests at home or at the opera.  Also on view is a selection of beaded bags, long gloves and hats. One is a silver cap perfect to slip over a head of bobbed hair and dance the Charleston. Stop in for a treat, and decide who had more style: the blue bloods of Downton Abbey, or the ladies of Chappaqua. The exhibit runs through the year and may be viewed Tuesdays, Wednesdays, Thursdays & Saturdays 1:00-4:00pm or by appointment  914 238-4666

2013 Exhibit Opening Reception New Castle’s Beginnings – Our Founding Farms

resign_hexamer_nursery

The new exhibit  traces our town’s origins from Native American lands through the farms of the nineteenth century, to the estates and housing developments that turned New Castle into the community we know today.  A focus on several local farms and their products will be featured – Sutton Farm, Dodges Farm, Brann Farm, Taylor and Annadale Farms, and of course the Greeley Farm.

The first farms of New Castle were established on large tracts of land purchased from the Native American trible of the Mohegan Confederation, inclusing the Sintsincks.  Even our hamlet’s name, Chappaqa, has Native American roots.  The area was called Shepequa, which referred to the abundant water sources that made farming possible.  Many other Native American words have been retained in the names of our streets and landmarks.

There will be interactive aspects to this exhibit plus a seminar series featuring speakers from local farms operating today.

A public opening reception will be held on Sunday, March 3rd from 3:00-5:00 pm.

The exhibit will run through the year at the Greeley House, 100 King St, Chappaqua NY.  The hours are Tuesdays, Wednesdays, Thursdays & Saturdays 1:00-4:00 pm or by appointment  914 238-4666  For more information visit their web site: www.newcastlehs.org
