Add to Calendar 24-08-2013 24-11-2013 15 From Immigrant Home to Neighborhood Museum 10th Anniversary Exhibition takes a look at the transformation of the property from the late 19th century through the restoration of the house and opening of the Voelker Orth Museum. It offers the story of the how and the why it is a museum today. Once part of the Parson�s family estate lands, the house was built in 1881 as the new Murray Hill suburb developed with the arrival of the Long Island Rail Road. Through photographs, documents and materials visitors look back at a piece of Flushing, NY history and a family�s story, offering fresh air and a comfortable life-style to New York�s expanded middle-class. The exhibition provides a behind-the-scenes look at the restoration of the property in the late 1990s when the Museum was in formation. Lectures, workshops and a walking tour related to the exhibition will be scheduled in the fall. http://www.nymetroparents.com/2014neweventinfo.cfm?id=141294 Voelker Orth Museum true DD/MM/YYYY
