A Colonial Connecticut Thanksgiving, 1786

November 10, 2018 @ 11:00 am - 3:00 pm


Governor Samuel Huntington’s 1786 Proclamation states that the day be observed with praise, prayer, and “the voice of melody”. Come back to the Third Society of Windham where “no servile labour may be performed this day”. Traditional food dishes will be discussed by “Samuel’s mother” as “the family” savors their period feast including pompon pie. A common wedding ceremony is possible, a needy neighbor may come calling for Indian meal, and a weary traveler may need victuals. Harness your coursers!

$4 per person, children 12 & under free, members free.
