- November 23 - December 31 - It\'s a Child\'s World: Exhibition of Antique Dolls and Toys -
No admission charge; donations are appreciated.
Just the way to celebrate Christmas! Other children were once entertained by the engaging dolls and toys on display at Clinton Academy on Saturdays and Sundays for the month of December. The East Hampton Historical Society is sure these special dolls and toys will charm the children, parents, and grandparents of today just as they did long ago. Returning from last year will be the magical Christmas village that sits beneath a tall Douglas fir, the treasure of an East Hampton resident who decided to share her childhood Christmas display with us all.

This is a rare opportunity to tour the interiors of some of East Hampton Village’s most important historic homes. We have selected six structures that range in age from 1680 to 1784 that will be decorated in various periods representing Colonial times up to a turn-of-the-twentieth-century German Victorian Christmas tree. There will be costumed guides, carolers, and tasty treats all experienced through the charming light of flickering candles.
