Museum Village

March’s Object of the Month

March’s Object of the Month was chosen by our longtime Collections volunteer, Joyce Holloway. It is one of her favorite objects at the museum! 
 
Victorian Child’s Rocker, ca. 1880-1890; maple and wicker. 
 
Manufactured by Heywood Bros. & Co., Gardner, Massachusetts.
 
This child’s rocking chair has a wicker weave back with a Japanese fan, moon, and five pointed star. It has a bowed crest rail continuing in arms with a chain motif. 
 
How gorgeous! 

Museum Village Christmas Thank You

A Big Thank you to everyone who came to Christmas in the Village this year on December 7th! 

 

We enjoy giving back to the community by volunteering the day, and making it a free event. Yet, your donations make it a very successful fundraiser for us. Special thank you to Santa & Mrs. Clause, New Windsor Music Academy, Song of the Valley Chorus, Karen Beals and The YMCA Performing Arts. We are so grateful for your support! 

 

For those of you who couldn’t make it to the event this year, check out the photos of some of our exhibits. If you would like to make a donation please click on the icon below.
