Fall Open House at the Flint House

Come by on Sunday, October 6 from 1-4 p.m. for a tour of the Flint House!

Beverly Clark, Village Historian, and Michelle Norris will be here to show you around and answer your Scotia questions.

We will be joined by Diana Carter and others from the Community Archaeology Program at Schenectady County Community College. They have completed some new explorations here in 2019 and will have pictures and items recovered during their dig for display. Find out what we’ve learned about the history of the Flint House.

The broomcorn harvest is just finishing up, and there will be some of this year’s crop to see; you can also try your hand at combing out the seeds, a necessary part of the process.

We are also getting ready for the Glenville Bicentennial in 2020. There will be some items—like a piece of the tug-of-war rope—from the Sesquicentennial in 1970 on display, and we welcome your memories and your ideas for how to celebrate next year.
