Come hear George Washington re-enactor Dave Emerson speak at the Old Dutch Parsonage while Susan Plaisted gives a hands-on ice cream-making demonstration in the kitchen wing of the Wallace House historic site.
In early June of 1789, George Washington took his leave of “Hope Farm,” home of the Wallace family, to resume his spring campaign against the British army. Step back in time, and come hear him speak at the Old Dutch Parsonage, where he goes to say goodbye to his good friend, the Reverend Jacob Hardenbergh. At the same time, in the kitchen of the Wallace House, historic foodways expert Susan Plaisted will give a hands-on demonstration of how ice cream – one of Washington’s favorite desserts – was made in the eighteenth century. Samples will be available for visitors. This event is suitable for all ages.
Advance registration is recommended as seating is limited. Call 908-725-1015 or email email@example.com to register.
