~ from the New Castle Historical Society

On Saturday, June 14, from 1:00 to 2:00 p.m. please join us for a reception for Emily Simon, our HGHS “Senior Experience” student, who worked as an intern for the Historical Society and produced an exhibit we think you’ll love.  Stop by to meet Emily and then shop at Gold in Your Attic’s Special Spring Antiques and Collectibles Sale – open Friday, June 12 and Saturday June 14 from 10:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. each day.

This May and June she offered her services to assist with the House Tour, the Here Comes the Bride exhibit and has completed a mini exhibit entitled “The Evolution of Hats.”

“For my Senior Experience project,” said Emily, “I decided to intern with New Castle Historical Society. Initially, there were several projects I could initiate; however, hats intrigued me and I felt that there was a story to tell. Hats have been worn for centuries. Why did people begin to wear them? Why did people stop? How have they changed? All these questions helped to shape my project. Originally, I had nothing more than a topic. All the research, assembling posters, and finding hats culminated in The Evolution of Hats exhibit.”

The Historical Society’s Greeley House is at 100 King Street in Chappaqua.
