Get into the holiday spirit in a unique and festive way at the Hendrick I. Lott House tree lighting!
The Hendrick I. Lott House will be celebrating its 300-year anniversary. Built in 1720, with an expansion in 1800, the Lott house is the longest single-family owned and occupied home in New York City. Exterior renovations took place on the house, but unlike other Dutch farmhouses in the city, the inside remains untouched, preserving the architectural fabric of its long, storied history.
To commemorate the occasion of this architectural time capsule, the non-profit organization, Friends of the Lott House will be hosting a holiday celebration, with a rare opportunity to see some of the interiors of the house.
The holiday celebration will include a tree lighting, kid-friendly games and crafts, a visit from SinterKlaas himself and performances from local Brooklyn school choirs. Tom Campanella, professor, historian and author raised in Marine Park, Brooklyn will be in attendance and signing his newest book Brooklyn: The Once and Future City.
