Wappingers Historical Society textiles

The wappinger falls historical society in wappinger falls .n.y.     We are a small village just north of NYC.  With a rich historical past that includes textile manufacturing- right here in the village.  The brand new exhibit : The history of the Bleachery--- is a fascinating historical time line of how the small village of wappingers falls played such an important role in textile history.  The homestead was built in  1741.   Today it  maintains it's charm and character filled with period antiques  and textiles, some of which were donated by family descendants of the home.

On  May 5th  we wil be hosting a "Tea Party"  from 2-5 pm.  Let me know if you can join us.  Tickets are 20.00 and can be purchased
