As part of the festivities, Historic Hudson is once again opening its offices at 611 Warren Street, on the second floor, as a "warming station," where cheering potables and comestibles will be on offer. To provide more incentive to leave the street and climb the stairs, Historic Hudson will be showing a ten-minute film by local film maker Isabel Barton, part of her documentary Unraveling Hudson created in 2001.
The segment features the Dr. Oliver Bronson House in the early days of Historic Hudson's advocacy--before the house was designated a National Historic Landmark, before Historic Hudson entered into a lease agreement with the state to become its legal steward, before the windows were repaired or reproduced, before the stabilization and restoration of the building began in earnest--and articulates the passion for the house and the understanding of its significance that inspires the ongoing restoration.
Historic Hudson will also be offering for sale gingerbread replicas of the Bronson House window sash, suitable for hanging on the holiday tree.
