Huskies, eagles, and squirrels, oh my! The Seward House Museum welcomes animal lovers of all ages to participate in a series of pet themed activities. From 1- 2 PM is the Paws & Claws tour of the museum that relates the family’s rich history of pets and the stories behind them taken directly from personal letters and diaries. From 2 – 2:30 will be a story time activity relating to Aesop’s Fables, a series of classic animal themed tales that Fanny Seward read as a child. From 3 – 4 PM the finale will be a costumed pet parade in the museum’s garden, where families can show off their favorite furry, scaly or feathered friend in a costume of their choice with prizes awarded by local judges. Local pet adoption agencies will be present throughout the day to provide information on adopting a critter of your own.

William Henry Seward

May 2nd 5pm-8pm

Join us for a First Friday reception, featuring live American acoustic music by guitar player & vocalist, Tim Herron, and a photography exhibit by emerging artist, Caleb Filer. Tim is based out of Syracuse, New York and plays in a band, as well as playing and singing solo. Caleb is studying photography at Onondaga Community College, where he is graduating in May 2014. His work focuses on “details often overlooked,” resulting in breathtaking images of the natural world.

In addition to our First Friday reception, the Seward House Museum will be participating in a small Arbor Day ceremony taking place in Seward Park at 7 pm, where a tree will be planted. Please stop by to be a part of this celebration.

As always, guests are invited into the Museum to view the Dining and Drawing Rooms, with docents on hand to answer questions and interpret the spaces.  Complimentary refreshments will be served.

This event is free and open to the public.
