Museum of Rhinebeck History presents an Old School Game Night!
Historically, people held card parties as a social event and had daily bridge groups. The Museum of Rhinebeck History is reviving this tradition with our Olde School Game Night. Join us for an evening of fun as we play board and card games, including Monopoly, checkers, dominoes, Jenga and more. Refreshments will be served and you will be entered for a door prize with cost of admission. We will also have a display of vintage games from Rhinebeck's past. This is an opportunity to meet people, play games and support the Museum of Rhinebeck History's mission of preserving Rhinebeck's past!
When: Thursday, July 28, 7-9pm
Where: 6565 Springbrook Ave (Route 9). Rhinebeck Suite 5 in the MHV Plaza

The Museum of Rhinebeck History is housed in the historic building known as the Quitman House, located 3.5 miles north of the Village of Rhinebeck at 7015 Rte 9, Rhinebeck, NY 12572. It is open during the summer on Saturdays 1-4pm.
The Museum’s mission is to collect, catalog and interpret the history of the town. The collection of gifts to the Museum includes letters, books, journals, clothing, furniture, photographs, postcards, and other related artifacts which reveal the life of this community.
A detailed listing and some collection images can be found at through the Consortium of Rhinebeck History Catalog.
Some photos in the collection may be viewed at Hudson River Valley Heritage.
Many of the objects are rotated for display from the Museum's permanent collection in its exhibit space.
On special occasions, artifacts have been put on long-term loan to organizations such as the Rhinebeck Reformed Church,
the Chancellor Livingston Chapter Daughters of the American Revolution, the Rhinebeck United Methodist Church, and the Dutchess County Fair.
Those loans are renewed yearly. The Museum and the Quitman House have on loan in the front parlor
antiquities from the Robert Sands House through the generosity of Wilderstein.
These objects were given to them by the late Montgomery Anderson, a Sands family descendant.
