Living history day at Ten Broeck Mansion

ALBANY, N.Y. (NEWS10) – The Albany County Historical Association will be presenting living history day at the Ten Broeck Mansion from 12 to 4 p.m. this Sunday.

While learning about the significant legacy of this beautiful mansion, there will also be plenty of events to cleanse your history palate.

Re-enactors such as Jack Baylis will take on the persona of Abraham Lincoln and there will also be a Capital District Civil War round table.

Period music will be performed by “Rural Felicity”, sheep shearing, pony rides and baby animals; including arts and crafts for the kids are all part of a jammed packed day of family fun.

Aaron Holbritter, Administration Clerk of the Ten Broeck Mansion says:

“I think it’s (mansion) a real gem, here in the middle of Arbor Hill, and it is open seven days a week from dawn until dusk. We encourage people to come and visit, bring their pets, bring a picnic; come and enjoy the space. The Mansion is here for the community to enjoy, so we really encourage people to come, and living history is a great way to do it.”
