NORTH BLENHEIM—The New York Power Authority’s (NYPA) historic Lansing Manor will host a world-class porcelain doll display now through October 31.  The exhibit includes porcelain dolls from such prominent companies as Ashton-Drake, Paradise Gallery and the Franklin Mint, and features some of the most exquisite and life-like dolls in the world.

The display ranges from the traditional porcelain babies to the more elaborate fancy ladies and can be admired by all ages for their detailed artistry.  The dolls indeed compliment the historic décor of Lansing Manor.

Historic Lansing Manor is located on the grounds of the New York Power Authority’s Blenheim-Gilboa Project Visitors Center and is open Wednesday thru Monday from 10a.m. to 5p.m. with free admission which includes the doll display.  The site is located on State Route 30, 17 miles south of Middleburgh and about 50 minutes from Albany.
