An 1863 Thanksgiving
This event was held on Saturday, November 23, 2019.
Over the River and Through the Woods…
It was our own New Hampshire native Sarah Josepha Hale, Editor of Godey’s Lady’s Book, who persuaded President Lincoln to declare the fourth Thursday in November a National Day of Thanksgiving in 1863.
Come to the Farm Museum for a special living history farmhouse tour with role players in period dress; enjoy 19th century Holiday music in the parlor and horse-drawn wagon rides through the fields. Visit our blacksmith and explore our barns. Pop popcorn over the campfire. Pumpkin chocolate chip cake and mulled cider will be served in the 1940’s farmhouse kitchen.
