Hallockville Museum Farm, an authentic, preserved 28-acre North Fork farm homestead, invites visitors to experience old-fashioned holiday traditions during the Historic Holidays at Hallockville open house on Sunday, December 3, from 12:00 – 3:30 p.m. Costumed docents will lead tours of historic homes at Hallockville, while sharing stories of past holiday celebrations. The Hallock Homestead, which is listed on the National Register of Historic Places, will be decorated for a Victorian Christmas. In the Cichanowicz Farmhouse, docents will recreate a Polish Christmas Eve celebration from the 1930s. Visitors may view an exhibit of antique toys, take in the aroma of baking in an antique wood stove, and learn how Christmas celebrations were banned by early East End settlers and eventually came to the North Fork primarily as a secular celebration. The event is free and open to the public as Hallockville’s holiday gift to the community. Hallockville Museum Farm is located at 6038 Sound Ave. in Riverhead.
