Current Events


On Saturday and Sunday, November 13th and 14th, the Austerlitz Historical Society presents the annual Holiday House & Shop. Let all the stress of the past year go and come and jump into the holiday spirit!

The historic Morey-Devereaux House will be open with the period rooms decorated for both Thanksgiving and Christmas. Guest decorators have each taken on a room and the results are truly wonderful–some of the decorations are available for purchase.

The house will also host a bake sale and the famous soup kitchen, with a wide assortment of delicious homemade soups available for easy takeout. While perusing the house to enjoy the decorations (and get a few ideas) you will notice that there are items for sale — don’t forget to check-out the beautiful cards and Advent calendars imported from England.

Additionally, the historic Harvey House, which houses The Shop at Old Austerlitz, will be open with all sorts of bargains and new holiday treats, everything from historic toys, antiques, jewelry, and art. It is the perfect spot to pick-up those unusual and unique gifts.

Admission is free and all purchases benefit the ongoing programs and maintenance of the society.

The Holiday House & Shop will be open on Saturday, November 13th from 10am until 4pm, and on Sunday, November 14th from 12 Noon until 4pm. Old Austerlitz is located at 11550 State Route 22, in the hamlet of Austerlitz.
