Browse the A Notion to Sew - The inspiration for "A Notion to Sew" came out of a two year project to inventory the furnishings and household items of the Hasbrouck family at Locust Lawn, a sprawling farm complex featuring the Federal era house of Josiah Hasbrouck. This stately 1814 house later became the home of Levi and Hylah Hasbrouck and their five children. Using photographs, letters and other archival materials, this exhibit examines a group of talented and energetic women whose family history goes back to the earliest days of settlement in New Paltz and offers viewers a glimpse of their handiwork.
Browse the As the Seasons Turn - As the Seasons Turn is an exhibit of greeting cards from the late 19th to early 20th century, a collaboration between Historic Huguenot Street and Locust Lawn Farm, owned by Locust Grove. The collection contains Valentines, Easter, Christmas, New Years, and Birthday cards along with gift calendars, most of which were donated by Annette Innis Young. Several of the greeting cards are addressed to members of the Hasbrouck, Innis and Young families, with their original envelops and personal notes from the sender. The exhibit also includes four handmade Valentines, from the Dingman family and from the personal collection of Hitchock-Kelley Family and Mary Etta Schneider. The HHS and Locust Lawn Farm greeting card collection contains over 400 cards – a selection has been chosen for this exhibit.
