Orange County Executive Steve Neuhaus and county Department of Parks, Recreation and Conservation Commissioner Richard L. Rose, in cooperation with the Friends of Hill-Hold and Brick House Museums, announced that Hill-Hold Museum will host its annual holiday opening on the weekends of December 13 and 14 and December 20 and 21. Saturday hours are 3 to 7 p.m. and Sunday hours are noon to 4 p.m.

Holiday visitors to Hill Hold, the 1769 homestead of Thomas Bull, will be greeted by the festive decorations adorning the home and the grounds. The entrance hall will greet visitors with the smell of fresh evergreens. A holiday tree will feature a collection of antique ornaments and a vast array of old-fashioned toys. A small tabletop tree will be displayed in the upstairs bedroom and volunteers will be in the workroom creating old-fashioned crafts. Hill Hold’s Goosetown School will offer an opportunity for children to make an ornament and learn all about one-room schoolhouses. Cider, cookies, and story time will be offered in the basement kitchen. To complete the visit, jolly old St. Nick will greet visitors and pose for pictures with children of all ages.

“Hill-Hold Museum is one of our region’s premiere destinations for those who appreciate a bit of history with their holiday fun,” said County Executive Neuhaus. “Please join Hill-Hold and Orange County Parks staff this December for a holiday experience fit for the whole family.”

Admission is $2 per child and $3 per adult.
