Special Event! Hard Work Hand Work

Tin smithing, broom making, textile production, candle making, and open-hearth cooking are only a few of the engaging, hands-on activities your students experience when they participate in this program. In small groups led by museum educators in period attire, students navigate the busy landscape and gain an understanding of the skills, trades, and chores that were part of daily life on the Manor during the New Nation Era. A child-focused tour of the Manor’s historic buildings completes the educational visit. This program begins at 10:00 am and concludes at 1:45 pm, with a half-hour lunch break. (Activities may change, subject to seasonality.)
