Times: The Village is open from 9:30 am to 5:00 pm

Cost: FREE standard admission for all!

Mark your calendars for August 30, 2019, when admission will be free, thanks to the Highland Street Foundation’s Free Fun Fridays program! Watch hearth cooking demonstrations, experience early 19th-century farms, and be amazed by crafters in the Tin, Blacksmith, Print, Shoe and Pottery Shops. Learn about our three water-powered mills, play games, visit our gardens, and walk the woodland, river, and pasture walks.

Due to the number of visitors expected, no large bags (including large backpacks) or coolers will be permitted in the historic Village. Please note that the main parking lot will likely be full by 11:30 am.
