Historic Hanna's Town Opens May 5th
In addition to site tours, special opening day activities will include an encampment in the fort by Proctor's Militia re-enactorment unit.
Local musician and educator Paula Purnell will present a family-friendly, interactive musical program that will feature colonial era folk songs, Native American music, and the 'homemade' music that the early settlers would have crafted themselves. This program will begin at 11:00 a.m. in the pavilion. Audience members will be invited to make instruments and play along. This program is made possible through a grant from the Richard P. Gibson & Rosemary Kirr Charitable Trust. The program is free with admission to the site, but reservations are recommended.
Afternoon Tea will be served on Saturday during seatings at 11:30 and 2:00 p.m. A 'full tea' will be served, which includes savories, scones, swets, pastries, and, of course, tea for $18 per guest. Seating is limited and advance reservations are a must.
In addition to tours, visitors can help with spring planting in the tavern's kitchen garden and play with a variety of toys that were popular in early America.
The Museum Shop will feature opening day specials. You may also purchase admission/tour tickets at the Shop. Admission: $5 per adults, $4 for students/seniors/children over 5.
