Hallockville Museum Farm invites visitors to experience old-fashioned North Fork holiday traditions during the Historic Christmas at Hallockville event on Sunday, December 4.

Holiday displays in three historic residences on the 28-acre preserved farm will be staffed by costumed docents welcoming guests and sharing stories of past holiday celebrations.

Historic Christmas at Hallockville is free and open to the public as the Museum Farm’s holiday gift to the community. 

At the Cichanowicz Farmhouse guests will enjoy a Christmas Eve celebration as it would have been experienced by Polish immigrants to the North Fork in the 1930s when the house was built. In Polish culture, Christmas Eve is a major holiday, highlighted by a special dinner, gift-giving and other traditions. 

The Hudson-Sydlowski House will feature a display of dollhouses from the museum’s collection decked-out for the holidays. The exhibit will also include a two Victorian dollhouses loaned by Bonnie Zulli as well as a Christmas dollhouse, a miniature farmstand and several room vitrines loaned by Jeff Hallock and Debbie Bowen created by their parents, Norman and Joan Hallock. The Hudson-Sydlowski house is also home to Hallockville’s Gift Shop, where visitors may browse for unique handmade items.
