PHOTOS: Peekskill Historians Celebrate the Holidays

Young and old enjoyed the Peekskill Museum's annual holiday party and open house.

People of all ages perused historic maps, old-fashioned clothing, ornate furniture, Fleischmann's's gin bottles and many of the other treasures at annual holiday party and open house on Dec. 11.

About 80 people total visited the historic Victorian house on Union Ave. where Santa (aka Calvert E. Schlick Jr., a museum trustee) greeted children with a bag full of toys.

The Mary Crescenzo trio provided holiday music while guests enjoyed many different holiday treats - from penne to cider to cookies. Click through the photos for more.

Yes, Virginia there is a Santa Claus. Don't pay attention to reporters who say otherwise ;).

A great time was had by all. The place looked great - everyone should try to make their way over to see many of Peekskill's treasures.

The Peekskill Museum is great. It's got a lot of cool history plus the Revolutionary War cannon on the front lawn. Some odd stuff, too, to go along with the traditional artifacts. In the picture with Curran and Beers, Santa looks like he's saying, "GO FOR TWO!" Perhaps it's Rex Ryan under there.
