    Clinton: 1828-1938 is the Clinton Historical Society‘s summer exhibit for 2018. It will tell the story of the town and its seven hamlets through over 230 vintage photographs, some from glass plate negatives, as well as artifacts including rare samplers from the 1820s, items from the town’s one-room schoolhouses, and posters from the 1890s. “Getting There” will feature family transportation and “Timeless Tots” will exhibit early 1900’s candid photos of children with their toys. Borrowed from private collections as well as assembled from the historical society’s archive, most of the images and artifacts have never before been exhibited.

    Special Bonus Exhibit: In commemoration of 100 years since the end of the First World War, a separate display will feature artifacts relating to the Great War.

    This free exhibit will be open weekends from June 30 through July 29 from 1-4 p.m. at the Clinton Historical Society’s headquarters and exhibit center, the 1777 Creek Meeting House, at 2433 Salt Point Turnpike in Clinton Corners (1 mile east of the Taconic Parkway). Look for the vintage doctor’s buggy out front! A special opening reception with refreshments will be held Saturday June 30 at 1 p.m.
