Friends of the Pruyn House logoLatham, N.Y. (August 24, 2018) –The Friends of Pruyn House will celebrate our 35th anniversary this year!  Come join us for our annual “Old Fashioned Sunday” at the Pruyn House, 207 Old Niskayuna Rd., Latham NY, on Sunday September 9th from 12 noon to 4pm. The public is invited to this FREE event which will be held rain or shine.

Old Fashioned Sunday is a festive fun day in a lovely setting at this 5 1/2 acre site.  The historic house built between 1825 and 1830 will be open for touring. The day will feature music throughout the afternoon featuring three different bands from the Town of Colonie.  A number of attractions are planned including Old Tyme craft demonstrations, exhibits, vendors, as well as visiting the beautiful gardens and other outbuildings such as the one-room schoolhouse and tool museum. For children, there will be pony rides, face painting, a storyteller, a magician, an art show, wand-making and live animals.  There will be homemade baked goods as well as vendors selling hamburgers, hot dogs, grilled cheese, veggie-burgers, soda, ice cream and popcorn. 

Old Fashioned Sunday is hosted by the Friends of Pruyn House. The mission of the Friends of Pruyn House, a not-for-profit community organization in partnership with the Town of Colonie, serving as the educational, historical and cultural center of the Town, is to restore, conserve and preserve the Pruyn House Complex. It is the site for a wide variety of public, private, civic and corporate events throughout the year.
