Path Through History Weekend – “Signs of the Times: Flavors of Yesterday” Exhibit Opening
Local historian John Antonowicz, who has collected vintage Chenango County signs for decades, partners with the Chenango County Historical Society in this exhibit featuring advertising ephemera related to grocery stores and restaurants. Large vintage storefront signs along with historic promotional material offer a taste of culinary nostalgia. During “Path Through History Weekend,” special events such as this one highlight historically and culturally significant sites in order to offer new perspectives on New York state’s heritage.
Summer Barn Party
This year’s Summer Barn Party – an evening of food, fun, and friends to benefit the museum – is inspired by our newest Community Gallery exhibit, “Sixpence in Your Shoe: A Glimpse at Chenango County Wedding Traditions.” In keeping with this year’s matrimonial motif, guests will enjoy delicious wedding reception fare catered by the Canasawacta County Club, with beverage tastings from Better Daze Winery, Forged Brewing Company, Hidden Springs Brewhouse, the Madrona Tasting Room, Old Home Distillers, and Ommegang Brewery. Live Event NY is coordinating the festivities, which will feature music by DJ Jim Baldwin and photos by 5th Dimension Photography.
