Craving a blast of the past?
Over the next two months, the Historical Society of the Nyacks is offering a peek at what an old-timey kitchen looked like. You can check out appliances and other households items from yesteryear that your grandmother might have used.
The group’s press release has the details:
“Tinware shakers, rolling pins, yellowware mixing bowls, cookie cutters, vintage aprons, an intriguing collection of bottle openers, mezzalunas and some mysterious hand cranked appliances – these are just a few of the items that may remind you of childhood visits to the home of a beloved elderly relative or give younger folks a glimpse of some of the joys and hardships of life a few generations back!
Evocative treasures from the rest of the home, such as a tea table set for two, a display of lamps, candlesticks, and other household items from the 19th Century, as well as children’s toys, are also included in the exhibit. The living room is arranged around the original coal-fired parlor stove that is a permanent part of the grand nineteenth-century home that houses the exhibit.
‘Great Grandma’s Kitchen: Household Implements of Long Ago’ will be open to the public from 1 to 4 p.m.every Saturday through January and February, at the Historical Society of the Nyacks museum, Suite L-2 of the Depew House, 50 Piermont Avenue, Nyack. It may be seen at other times by appointment.”
