History days at Cherry Hill and Ten Broeck Mansion

Cherry Hill house

Historic Cherry Hill.

Historic Cherry Hill and the Ten Broeck Mansion in Albany are again hosting early May history days, this time on May 6:

Historic Cherry Hill: Albany History Fair: World War I
The mansion on the south side of Albany will be hosting the 19th annual Albany History Fair, which this year is focused on WWI. The events include an original play about one of the families who lived at Cherry Hill, a virtual reality experience, exhibits, a show-and-tell about what people ate in Albany during WWI, and a bunch of talks.

The events are free and open to the public.

Ten Broeck Mansion: Living History Day
The mansion in Arbor Hill will have its annual Living History Day, with tours, re-enactors, live music, animals, and hands-on activities. It's free and open to the public.

The Ten Broeck Mansion will also be hosting a barbecue later that afternoon to welcome Albany mayor Kathy Sheehan to the neighborhood. (The mayor and her husband bought a home just on the other side of the Ten Broeck Triangle from the mansion.) Tickets for that are $10.
