June/July Information




Our display features items from the Society’s collection. In the Servant's Quarters one showcase is for Gentlemen's Personal Items, two will be for Ladies' Personal Items and the 4th one will have International costume dolls from the Lazzarini collection.


The red lace teaset is now in the sitting room. In the Library we have a framed picture of  Dr. Smythe at the Stable door. He was one of the doctors who practiced  at Glenalvon.


Please visit Glenalvon on one of our Open Days to support the volunteers who work so hard to keep Glenalvon open.

We are displaying a model of Glenalvon House, kindly lent to us by its creator Peter Giurin.

It will be on display in the CAHS Library for some time, so please take the opportunity to visit and see this feat of patience and skill.
