Rescheduled to Rain date – Colonial Field Day 

October 1, 2022 @ 2:00 pm 5:00 pm

Ever wondered how to play hoop and stick? Or pickle a vegetable? What about spinning yarn? 

Bring the whole family for free to see for yourself! Take part in activities that were commonplace in the 18th century. Speak with costumed staff and volunteers about the lives of those in the colonial era. Try your hand at beating a rug, playing nine-mans-Morris or look at a reproduction Brown Bess rifle like what was used in the Revolutionary War. Enjoy colonial music and some treats while you explore the chores as well as the fun and games of the past. 

While you’re on the property why not attend our pickling or candle dipping* workshops? 

Rain date Sunday November 6th, 2-5 pm
