Summer Site Clean Up and Open House August 29th!

August 2910494661_10152946353653785_6015608218874503036_n: 10:00am-2:00pm

Come down to the Rebecca Nurse Homestead for our Summer Site Clean Up. There is lots to do around a 25 acre homestead with a 300 year old house, and we want it to look sharp for our fall tourist rush.

There are jobs for ages and abilities including sweeping out the buildings, weeding, pruning, clearing out brush, and helping organize the herb garden. Even if you are not able to help with the maintenance, please come down and just say hi! It is a great opportunity to see the site, meet some quality folk, and help preserve a true national treasure. Children and families are, as always, welcome!
