This celebration marks the passing of 200 years since the Hall's completion (construction 1810-1819), and 70 years since the formation of the Constable Hall Association, and the opening of the Hall for public tours.
Opening ceremonies will begin at noon with special guests, following a ribbon cutting ceremony at the front of the hall with the help of Hon. F. Anthony Keating, Senator Joseph A. Griffo and Assemblyman Ken Blankenbush.
The Flag will be raised by the color guard from the 479th Engineer Battalion, complete with cannonfire. Local resident, Ashley Roberts will sing the National Anthem.
The afternoon is teeming with fun and historical activities for all ages and interests. It will feature re-enactors from The War of 1812 and The Civil War.
Historical lectures, slideshow presentations, historical displays, musical performances, Victorian era dances, and lawn games appropriate for kids.
Several food trucks will be available to help guests refuel for all of the fun. The food trucks include Fireman Tom's Ice Cream, Squishy's BBQ, and Tug Hill Lunch Box. In addition, there will be homemade baked goods available from local sources, and the Gift Shop will be open for those wishing a souvenir of the day.
The Constable Hall Association, which is marking 70 years, is planning to bury a Time Capsule to be opened 30 years from now, celebrating 100 years of dedication to the Hall.
Visitors to the the Hall on Sunday can leave several different kinds of messages to the future. The Association will add memorabilia to these messages and bury the capsule in our memorial area at a later date.
There will be no admission charge for this special event. All are welcome!
