SATURDAY: Westchester Sketchers at The Peekskill Museum
The Peekskill Museum is a community-supported cultural organization, which had its beginnings in 1946 with the acquisition of the former Herrick family home.
Its mission is to collect, preserve, study, and display objects, documents, photographs, and other items relating to the history of Peekskill and its immediate surrounding area. It offers information about Peekskill and regional history through exhibits, programs, and publications for educational and cultural purposes.
While artifacts and imagery are distributed throughout the Herrick House, the Peekskill Museum has several permanent collections, including the Ladies' Victorian Bedroom, the Cast Iron Stove collection, and the Marion Boyle Children's Room with a 1939 Soapbox Derby Racer and the Museum's infamous giant ball of string.
