Path through History Open House - Jacob Purdy Park

Saturday, October 12, 2019

White Plains will participate along with hundreds of other communities throughout NY State in presenting its local history to the public. Jacob Purdy House will be open for visiting with authentic displays of what life was like in White Plains in the mid and late 18th century. Guides will be on hand to offer information on the 1776 Battle of White Plains and also how local families prepared food, furnished their home and made their own candles, brooms and household implements. Gifts for children under 12. Light refreshments will be served. All with no charge. The Gift Shop will be open for guests who wish to purchase mementos, books or pamphlets on White Plains history, or sign up for membership in the White Plains Historical Society. Bring friends. Families with children are especially welcome. And, even visitors from Great Britain or Germany’s Hess region – all is forgiven!
