Staatsburgh in the Winter
January 23 @ 10:00 am - 10:45 am
One event on January 23, 2021 at 10:00 am
The winter months were a unique time for Staatsburgh during the Gilded Age. Follow staff on a guided walk discussing the winter-time fun from the turn of the century. Using historic photos and oral histories, the tour will show to visitors how the Edwardians spent a day in the snow. Along the way, complete our winter scavenger hunt – fun for all ages!
The Mills family enjoyed several outdoor activities along the Hudson River – activities we still enjoy today, such as ice skating and sledding, to forgotten past-times like ice boat racing. Even tobogganing became a ‘craze’ in the 1880s!
The tour will be approximately 45 minutes in length and cover about 1 mile of fairly level terrain. The event will be re-scheduled in the event of heavy snow. Please wear comfortable shoes and appropriate cold-weather clothing.
