Staatsburgh State Historic Site announced on Facebook the arrive of the holiday season. Halloween ended and Staatsburgh got to work, on Tuesday November 2nd, 2022, they shared that the big tree is up! They write:
And it’s begun! Huge thanks to our colleagues from Mills-Norrie State Park for helping us get the big tree up and the roof lighting hung! You guys are the best!
