COLONIE — The Pruyn House will host Old Fashioned Sunday on Sept. 11 from noon to 4 p.m.
The annual, free event at the 5.5-acre complex will feature tours of the historic Pruyn House, built between 1825 and 1830, music throughout the afternoon and “old tyme” craft demonstrations – a costume re-enactment at the one-room school house, sheep shearing, blacksmithing, tinsmithing and honey extraction. There is also the garden, pony rides, baby animals, a magician and games for the children.
The Kiwanis will be selling hamburgers and hot gods, Boilio will have home-made ice cream, Joe’s Dogh-To-go will have pizza and the Friends of the Pruyn House will be selling baked goods.
The Friends are celebrating their 38th year as caretakers of the historic complex.
“Our Pruyn House is rich with history and Old-Fashioned Sunday is a marvelous and time honored community event to highlight it’s heritage with educational demonstrations and recreational amusement,” said Supervisor Peter Crummey. “Special thanks to the Friends of the Pruyn House for continuing this well-established tradition.”
