Old Home Week Celebration Marlborough, NY

November 2, 2017

This early 1900s photo captured Warren’s Meat Market and the Herberich Bakery, which was in the 1897 Berean Building, located on Western Avenue in Marlboro during an Old Home Week Celebration.

According to Wikipedia online, “Old Home Week is a practice that originated in the New England region of the United States similar to a holiday or festival. It is best described as a town reunion.”

Referencing a 1911 Marlborough Record newspaper article titled, Full Program For Old Home Week, Marlborough hosted a “festival parade, consisting of a horse troop, fire companies, school children, orders and floats depicting ‘The Year of Fruits,’ and decorated wagons and automobiles. [The parade formed] on South 9W, moved to Western Avenue and Grand Street, to Whitney Place, to West Street, to Western Avenue, to King Street, to 9W, to the reviewing stand at Roma Villa. The music [was provided] by the Advance Lodge Band and the Walden and Highland Drum Corps.”
