Hallockville Museum Farm’s 31st Annual Fall Festival and Craft Show was held in partnership with the Long Island Antique Power Association in Northville Saturday and Sunday. There were traditional craft demonstrators in the museum’s Naugles Barn — Eastern Long Island Basketweavers Guild, Peconic Ruggers Guild, Smithtown Stitchers, Suffolk County Wood Carvers — with plenty of weaving and spinning.

Museum staff ran guided tours of historic buildings such as the 1765 Hallock Homestead, Hallock Homestead Barn, 1930 Cichanowicz House and Trubisz Little House, and showcased other exhibits. The event also featured music by the Red River Ramblers and East Bound Freight Bluegrass Band.

The entrance fees support Hallockville’s nonprofit educational mission.
