We would like to share this special ‘Early American Gem’ with you to enjoy a simpler time and slower pace as we move into our modern-day rush of holiday preparations. See an earlier time in our American History - long before it was customary to celebrate ‘the Holidays.’
Tours on the ½ hour – last tour at 3:30pm. Donations Gratefully accepted!
The home and land were settled, and the house built in the early 1700’s and occupied into the mid-20th century. You can decide if you can picture yourself living “by candlelight” to do everyday chores, sewing, mending, reading and cooking!
Watson House and the landowners were major players in the area during the American Revolution. The house will be lit by candlelight and simple decorating with fresh greens, costumed re-enactors will delight visitors with tales of local activity, daily life & living in an 18th century home during revolutionary times.
Parking is available on site; visitors are encouraged to bring a flashlight for safety as darkness comes early in late November.
We work hard to maintain our 300-year-old floors, please wear sneakers or flat-soled shoes - high heels NOT allowed in the building.
This event is open to DAR members, families & the public.
