The Albany County Historical Association is set to kick off its 76th year with the annual Living History Day at Ten Broeck Mansion on Sunday, May 6th, from noon to 4 pm.
This free community event includes tours of the historic Mansion, re-enactors, vendors, live music, pony rides and petting zoo, sheep-shearer, live demonstrations, hands-on activities, and more.
In celebration of Mayor Kathy Sheehan’s recent home purchase in the area, ACHA is hosting a “Welcome to the Neighborhood” BBQ for the Mayor and her family on May 6th from 3:30 to 5:30 pm, served up by local favorite, 3 Ball BBQ.
BBQ tickets are $10 and include a ½ chicken, potato, homemade coleslaw, roll and butter, cookie, and soft drink. All proceeds benefit the ACHA and Ten Broeck Mansion. BBQ dinner tickets should be purchased in advance on ACHA’s website.
The Ten Broeck Mansion is located at 9 Ten Broeck Pl., Albany. Free parking is available in the Mansion lot and along Ten Broeck Pl., Ten Broeck St., and Livingston Ave.
