The 61st Annual Holiday Greens Show
Every year, The Rensselaer County Historical Society with the expert inspiration and decoration work of The Van Rensselaer Garden Club together present the Annual Holiday Greens Show in the Hart-Cluett Historic House Museum. The lush Show is a Troy holiday tradition that transforms 12 rooms of the 1827 Federal-style Hart-Cluett House into a green winter wonderland. The Holiday Greens Show is the signature six decade long running event that inspired Troy’s celebrated Victorian Stroll. Following the traditions of historic holiday celebrations, members of the Van Rensselaer Garden Club incorporate fresh trees, greens and flowers to create an interactive experience that warms hearts, brightens eyes and fills the body with fresh aromas of winter woods. As you wander through the house, you can the sense the grandeur and elegance Troy held as one of America’s most prosperous cities in the 19th and 20th centuries. The Holiday Greens Show offers an enchanting historic atmosphere in which communities and families come together in the traditions of holiday joy and cheer.
The Holiday Gift Shop opens Thursday, November 17th!
