On a soft late summer evening, the nearly full corn moon rises over the broad shoulders of the Dutch barn and the ancient brick walls of the venerable Bronck farm house are pale peach in the moon glow. Candles light the way across the lawn, soft light filters through windows and sheds a welcoming glow. Visitors guided “By the Light of the Silvery Moon” are expected to arrive at any moment.
On Saturday August 13 beginning at 7:00 pm the Bronck Museum near Coxsackie is pleased to welcome visitors for a festive evening of rural hospitality from America’s past. Enjoy the music of a strolling fiddle player, wonderful refreshments, hear the strange stories and tales inspired by the elusive magic of the full moon. Save the date and come enjoy the simple pleasures of nightlife in times gone by.
Adult admission for this event is $8, GCHS members and children $4. Seating will be under a large tent on the museum's east lawn. The Bronck Museum is located just off US 9W 1.5 miles south of the intersection of routes 385, 9W and 81 near Coxsackie, NY. This event is made possible in part with public funds from the Greene County Legislature.
A National Historic Landmark and the Hudson Valley's oldest home.
