18th Century Thanksgiving Dinner Demonstration

A special day of thanks has been part of the American tradition since 1621. The Miller-Cory House Museum cooks will demonstrate the preparation of an early American Thanksgiving feast over the museum’s open-hearth fire, using colonial recipes and seasonal ingredients. (Please note that this is a demonstration only; dinner is not being served.) Proper colonial dining also requires proper table customs.  The program includes a presentation on authentic early American manners, place settings, and other interesting “table top traditions.”  Docents will be available to guide visitors through the restored, fully furnished colonial era farmhouse. Admission is $5 ages 13 and older; $3 ages 3-12, and free age 2 and younger.
