An Afternoon of Ice Cream, Entertainment, and Old-Style Independence Day Celebration
All ages will enjoy this free event that features ice cream, homemade lemonade, and musical entertainment. Guests have the opportunity to play authentic Victorian games, watch a traditional blacksmith at work, learn how old-fashioned hand cranked ice cream is made, and watch a special patriotic program by the Sons of the American Revolution which includes: musket firing, cotillion dance, and a parade through the grounds, all in revolutionary-war era costumes. Local authors offer book signings and readings. This event is held annually on the last Sunday of June at the Heritage House.
