FESTIVAL OF TREES CONTINUES
The Hancock House shares four floors of the elegant mansion decorated for the holiday season as part of their annual Festival of Trees. The trees are on display through December 31, 2021. Covid 19 guidelines and safe social distancing measures will be in place.
The theme for this year’s event is “T’was the Night Before Christma,” a tribute to the beloved classic poem by Clement Moore. Returning this year will be a holiday train layout, courtesy of the Upstate Model Railroaders. The train layout, and educational material about the history of trains in our region, is made possible by grants from Stewart’s Shops and the Ticonderoga Cultural Arts Alliance.
The Hancock House is open between 10 am and 4 pm Wednesday through Saturday. Group tours are available by reservation.

EXCELLENCE IN HISTORIC PRESERVATION TO WHITCOMB’S
The Preservation League of NY has awarded Whitcomb’s Garage Adaptive Reuse Project a 2021 Excellence in Historic Preservation Awards.
The award allows highlights projects, organizations, publications, and individuals that exemplify best practices in historic preservation and recognize the people who are using historic preservation to build stronger neighborhoods, create local jobs, provide affordable housing, open eyes to overlooked history, and save the places that are special to all.
The Whitcomb’s renovation project repurposed a disused service station and garage, creating space for new businesses in an economically challenged rural region. The conception, planning, and construction work was done by volunteers, both skilled and unskilled, who spent thousands of hours transforming the old garage into commercial workshops, a retail store, ceramics studio, and mixed-use space for classes, performances, and other community activities.
