Family programing

The Society presents many family friendly events. Our major family offerings are 17th Century Saturdays, a wonderful living history day at our 1715 Parson Barnard House site and our annual Trails and Sails walking tour. Each of these activities are part of a larger, county-wide series of events and draws an audience from outside our immediate area.

Population(s) Served

Curriculum- based, multi-grade offerings are reviewed, developed and presented every school year. Examples are Daily Life at Johnson CottageHouse Detectives (Parson Barnard House)What is an Artifact?

Skills such as gardening, cooking and sewing are an integral part of the lesson plan.
