Events to Consider Being a Part of

Keeping history an active part of the community is vital to our organization and something we strive for. With your help, we can work together to create more awareness and understanding of the history we're all a part of in the Capital Region.  


ACHA presents several events throughout the year, the following are a sample:

Living History Day: Held on the first Sunday in May, a free event featuring historic re-enactors, mansion tours, music, vendors, and pony rides and a petting zoo. Typically sees more than 200 visitors to the Ten Broeck Mansion grounds during the event.

 

Summer Archeology Camp: Open to 5th and 6th graders, this week-long camp is conducted by professional archeologists. Campers conduct a real archeological dig and clean, catalog, and display their discoveries. ACHA offers scholarships to low income campers.

 

Halloween Season Events: The ACHA's resident paranormal team, Tri-City New York Paranormal Society and other sponsors put on a Halloween themed event on the last weekend in October including ghost hunts, spirit circles and in the past, haunted houses.  These events are extremely popular and unique for the mansion.

Includes musical events, teas, lectures, and a children’s story hour.  The events are enhanced by a holiday shop and visits from the Dutch “Sinterklaas.” Typically sees over 1000 visitors to the Ten Broeck Mansion.
