The Historical Society of Rockland County proudly announces the
return of the ever popular annual holiday exhibition, now in its 38th year.  

With a renewed effort to showcase highlights from the Historical Society’s
permanent collection, Hudson Valley’s Tastemaker Ned Kelly will curate the
show, entitled “Simple Gifts,”  which will be shown inside the historic
Jacob Blauvelt House, c. 1832 (on the National Register of Historic Places).
 
In addition to selecting interesting, eclectic and unique items from the HSRC’s collection shelves, Ned Kelly and his team will decorate the historic Jacob Blauvelt House using their “perfect-pitch taste,” enhancing the charming spaces with exquisite beauty and refined elegance for the holidays.    
 
Opportunities to view the “Simple Gifts” exhibition and the holiday décor will be during the Society’s Holiday Programs, on Saturdays and Sundays from 12noon to 4pm and by appointment on weekdays between December 14 and January 12.  

Exhibition admission:  Adults $7; Seniors, Children (3 – 12) and Members:  $3; Children under 3:  Free
