Event Details

Join the Fulton County Historical Society on special Thursday mornings for Hands on History at the museum! Each week, we’ll focus on a different theme and use our exhibits and collections to explore these themes in local history. We’ll finish the morning with a craft activity. This program is geared toward ages 5-10.
Can you imagine elephants parading down Main Street in Gloversville? That’s just what happened when the circus used to come to town! Explore what you might find at a circus in the 1900s and discover how circuses traveled all over the country and advertised their shows. Then design your own circus poster using inspiration from historic images and items from the museum’s collection!

This series is made possible through the support of the Fulton County Board of Supervisors and the Fulton County Historian’s Office.
