Nativities of the Americas
Nativities of the Americas - the annual Parks-Bentley Place holiday exhibition opens on November 30, 2019. The exhibition displays more than 100 nativity sets from countries of North and South America.
A project of the Historical Society of Moreau and South Glens Falls, the nativity exhibition is in its sixth year and many of the sets on display for 2019 have not been included in previous exhibitions. Several of the rooms on the first floor of the house are filled with nativities large and small – some on loan from local collectors and others that are part of the Historical Society holdings.
Dates for the exhibition are November 30 and December 1, 6-8, 13-15, 21 and 28 when Parks-Bentley Place will be open from 1 – 4 pm. The exhibition will be open for extended hours of 1- 7 pm on December 20 & 27.
The annual exhibition has become a local favorite for individuals and groups alike. School groups and groups of ten or more can request a private tour during non-public hours by calling Nancy at 518-636-3856.
The fee is $5 for adults and $3 for children 12 years of age and younger. School groups receive a reduced rate of $1 per participant. (School tours must be arranged in advance.)
