Spend an evening at Mrs. Kearney’s Tavern where staff dressed in period clothing will serve lemonade, watermelon, and other summer treats for visitors, as they share tales of life along the river in the days of steamships and sloops. Visitors can settle into a game of checkers in the tavern room or, just outside, have a go at such period amusements as “roll-the-hoop” or “graces.” Thaddeus MacGregor, a musician and teacher from Englewood who now resides at old Schraalenburgh (better known as Dumont, New Jersey, today), will entertain visitors with music and songs of Mrs. Kearney’s day, while at around 8:15 each evening, Eric Nelsen — a historical interpreter who now stands in for Mrs. Kearney as tavern keeper — will read aloud from a story, poem, or essay of the time.
