house and barn tours, and more. Visit with the barrel maker, then enter the
summer kitchen to see hearth cooking in the walk-in fireplace and bake oven.

the Dowser who can find underground water to dig a well.

The kids can check a private collection of colonial toys, work with the
tin-smith to make a tin-punch craft, and talk with Betsy Ross as she makes
stars for her flag. NEW this year- Kids are invited to join in an old
fashioned schoolroom with a school-marm recreating a short class, at 2:30pm.

On both days, at noon, the author of "A Glimpse of Freedom" (D. Shupinski)
will be offering stories and a look back to Revolutionary days and of the
army's presence in southeast Pennsylvania. How did families cope with the
war?

the soldiers, learn about their duties and equipment. Musket demonstrations.
