|Post Card Collecting|
Those interested in deltiology (the study and collection of post cards) will enjoy the museums newest exhibit. Learn about the origins of post cards, which first appeared in Europe in 1869, and their popularity as a means of communication in the United States, around 1904. Hundreds of postcards are currently on display, many of which highlight certain areas of the world. The Taconic Postcard Club meets at the Museum and invites anyone curious about postcards they may have or wants to join the club to visit this amazing collection.
What do you believe in?
Or rather what did you believe in when you were young?
The Renowned Miniaturists’ Carol & Neal Pruzan with the staff at the Yorktown Museum have assembled wonderful scenes showing examples of Magic, the Tooth fairy, Dragons, Fairy Tales, & Love ~ who doesn’t believe in LOVE to name a few. They also show the darker side of what we believe in such as Ghosts and Witches.
