Tuesday, June 11, 2013

Celebrate the end of the school year and kick off the summer with colonial fun at the Adam Thoroughgood House on June 22, 2013 from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. Activities and games of the Colonial era will be played on the grounds around the house throughout the day while tours of the historic home will take place on the hour, every hour.


This free event allows visitors of all ages to partake in pastimes of the Colonial era, some that are familiar today. Join a game of ninepins, quoits or trap ball, or test your skills with pick-up sticks or marbles. There will be plenty of hands on fun, so bring a friend.
