GEORGE WASHINGTON’S BIRTHDAY CELEBRATION
The Johnson Ferry House at Washington Crossing State Park, New Jersey, cordially invites all interested public to a Washington’s Birthday Celebration, Saturday, February 19 from 1 to 4 pm to commemorate the birthday of our nation’s first president. In the parlor, listen to eighteenth century music that Washington may have known played upon the fiddle by Jim Kurzenberger. Find out some well- known and not so well known “Facts and Quotes” about our first Commander in Chief and Founding Father. Gingerbread, one of Washington’s favorite treats, will be prepared and baked in the winter kitchen hearth. Ask our interpreters about the house and colonial life. Colonial education and quill pen writing will be ongoing in the upstairs bedchamber.
Refreshment of “1740” ginger snaps with hot and cold cider will be available to all. This is a great family event for school age children and above. Come and go as you like as activities are ongoing.
