Historical Society at Old Home Day!

Aug 16, 2013 No Comments by

Old Home Day in Londonderry run all week, from the 13th to the 18th of August, 2013. The big day is Saturday, August 17th, when there is a foot race, parade, games, town fair, and exposition on the town common. I hope you will walk down Pillsbury Road to the Londonderry Historical Society museum complex for a tour of our grounds. There will be an open house with docents at the Samuel Morrison house, and you can view the Parmenter Barn, Clark Blacksmith Shop and the newly reconstructed carriage shed.

There will be a militia of colonial re-enactors on the museum grounds, shooting off the cannon on the hour, and drilling children in the techniques of colonial marching, as well as interpreting how the people of the time lived, dressed, cooked and slept in camps. A blacksmith will be demonstrating his art, as well as weavers, spinners, basket makers and other artisans. A Farmer’s market and craft fair, new for this year, will be on the museum grounds, too, as well as a silent auction to benefit the restoration of the 18th century Reverend William Morrison house, the oldest house in Londonderry.
