Sullivan County Historical Society’s Theme Tree Exhibit


It is that time again to start planning for the 2019 Theme Tree Exhibit at the Museum in Hurleyville.  The Sullivan County Historical Society invites organizations, businesses or individuals to plan to decorate a tree to join the festivities this year at the First Sunday Concert and Open House on Sunday December 1, 2019.

The decorating theme may be one that represents your organization, business, or your individual interests.  Organizations must provide their own tree.

The tree must be artificial and not taller than six feet. If it is shorter than 5 feet, you must provide a table. Since the trees are displayed in subdued lighting, it is best to have lights on the tree.

Trees may be set up November 22 – 27 and November 29 and November 30. The trees will remain until the week of January 5..

If you have any questions or would like to reserve a space, please call the museum at 845-434-8044 or email This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it..

We look  forward to your participation in this annual holiday event

The BOCES Art Exhibit will be on display through Tuesday, April 9. Please take time to see the work of Sullivan County's Budding Artist.
