What to Expect

How exactly do you celebrate fall like they did in the 1700s? Well, it’s a lot of fun, that’s for sure. First, you can take a horse-drawn carriage ride around the property, enjoying the beautiful landscaping and the changing colors of the trees. After that, try to find your way through a straw bale maze or play colonial games on the property’s bowling green. Don’t worry, there will be people there to show you the ropes if you’re a beginner. You can also visit the Pioneer Farm, where actors will be putting on demonstrations depicting what it was like to live in the area so long ago. Then, greet Gen. George Washington and listen to colonial-era tunes from the Itinerant Band. With so much to do, you’re going to want to stay all day on both Saturday and Sunday.

There are probably a lot of events you’re going to this fall, and you will want to make sure you can get to each and every one of them with ease.
