Dealers will be set up at the Weigh Station, as here, and at other historic buildings in the railroad complex.

SCHOHARIE — The Schoharie Colonial Heritage Association will host its 46th annual Fall Antiques Show on Sept. 24 and 25.
The dealers will be setting up on the grounds and in the buildings of the historic railroad complex. The Schoharie Valley Railroad Museum, the 1865 Station House, and the 1891 passenger car of the Middleburgh & Schoharie Railroad will be open to the public.

The Freight Shed, which houses all kinds of railroad memorabilia, including a restored 1917 Delaware & Hudson Railway caboose, will also be open to show-goers. There will also be a special exhibit and sale of Shirley’s Stoney Creek Quilts & Wovens on the second floor of the Creamery Building.

“This year we welcome the Heritage Artisans as well: the butcher, the baker, the candlestick maker, the broom maker and the blacksmith, to mention a few,” show organizers said in a release. “The cooks of SCHA have put together a scrumptious selection of picnic foods with our famous homemade desserts, should you want a great lunch under our picnic tent.”

Proceeds from the antiques shows fund the ongoing historic activities of the Schoharie Colonial Heritage Association.

The show runs on Saturday, Sept. 24, from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. and Sunday, Sept. 25, from 11 a.m. to 4 p.m. Admission is $6. Parking, at 143 Depot Lane in Schoharie, is free.

Call 518-295-7505 or 518-231-7241 for more information, or visit the Schoharie Colonial Heritage Association website SchoharieHeritage.org.
