One event on Sunday, October 17, 2021 at 12:00 pm
Eighteenth-Century outbuildings, herb and kitchen gardens help create a colonial atmosphere at the Miller-Cory House, where interactive tours engage the imagination of children and adults. Built about 1740, the small, neat and authentically furnished farmhouse stands on its original site along the “road to the mountains.” Visitors are introduced to colonial skills and practices as costumed interpreters recreate the daily chores and seasonal farm work of rural life in the Westfields circa 1740 – 1820. An education complex houses special exhibits.
Four Centuries Weekend Oct 16-17:
- Step back into Colonial times and witness open-hearth cooking demonstrations, as cooks work in the kitchen, using herbs and seasonal vegetables to make authentic 18th-century recipes
- Sunday: cooks will “fire up” the beehive oven to bake delectable colonial treats including bread, muffins and biscuits
- “George Washington” will be present
