Living History Days at the StoneHouse
Oct 14 all-day

The Belchertown Historical Association is proud to again offer Living History Days on Saturday, October 14, 2017 from 10—2.  Please help us promote this opportunity to go back in time and experience life as it was in the 1800’s.

Live reënactors, many dressed in period costumes, will demonstrate and discuss many of the Fall and Harvest activities that might have occupied residents of a house such as the Stone House in 19th century New England.  We plan to present demonstrations and lecture topics that will include Herb Gardening; Historic Farm Implements; Preserving Herbs, Vegetables and Fruits; and other seasonal activities.   The Stone House will be open with a display of our nineteenth century farm equipment, our re-creation 19th century garden and house tours from 10 to 2.

In addition, we will also present displays of the results of in-town archeological excavations and provide age-appropriate archaeological activities for children.  The Living History event will be a lot of fun, as well as a much-needed fundraiser.  Please join us to celebrate this continuing link with our past, and see (from the outside only) the Washington District School on its new foundation!
