Everyone enjoyed the company of friends and Holiday food and drinks on Sun., Dec. 9 at the Warwick Historical Society’s Annual Wassail Party. Wassail, a hot, mulled punch, is often associated with Yuletide and drunk from a ‘wassailing bowl.’
This year the event was held in the great room at the A.W. Buckbee Center in Warwick, where the Historical Society’s annual Holiday Express exhibit is currently on exhibit through Fri., Dec. 28. The exhibit features model trains zipping through a display of historic downtown Warwick.
The model locomotives of the Lehigh and Hudson River Railway hum along 150 feet of track surrounded by familiar Warwick sights such as the 1810 House, the Old School Baptist Meeting House, and the Shingle House.
Visitors can also travel back in time and enjoy the Historical Society’s fine collection of toys and games from the 1840s to the 1930s. Their beautiful and lovingly restored doll collection is on display along with doll houses modeled after some of Warwick’s historic homes. In addition, there is an extensive display of dolls from the collection of Warwick Historical Society volunteer Alina Badia de Lacour.
