Christmas at the Fort On Saturday December 6, 2014 from 10 am to 6 pm, the Fort Plain Museum will hold its annual holiday program. This year’s event will mark the Grand Opening of “The Children’s Attic” toy exhibit sponsored by Stewart’s Shops. Stewart’s Shops provided the museum with two grants totaling $2,000 which went towards rehabilitating the room (paint, electrical, shelves, etc.) and exhibit material. We greatly appreciate the generosity of Stewart’s Shops. This year’s event will feature book signings with AJ (Joyce) Berry and James F. Morrison. This year the duo brings 3 new books; The Colonels of Tryon County; Marinus Willett, Saviour of the Mohawk Valley; and Gitty, the Little Slave Girl. Also, the Town of Minden Historian, Robert Carter and AJ Berry will be signing copies of Memories of Fort Plain and the Town of Minden, which is a photo book featuring the history of Fort Plain and Minden. There are several photos from all periods of history included in this treasure. In addition to the above mentioned book signings, we will also have colonial holiday music played by members of the Liaisons Plaisantes! Further, we will have several crafters, items for sale in the gift shop, refreshments, and holiday fun! Christmas at the Forts is part of the Heritage Holidays events in conjunction with other historical sites in the Mohawk Valley. This event is free, however donations are greatly appreciated!
