November 22nd An Old-Fashioned Thanksgiving on the Farm 10 am- 3 pm
New Hampshire has a special connection to Thanksgiving, as it was our own Sarah Josepha Hale, born on a farm in Newport, NH, who after many years of letter writing, persuaded President Lincoln to declare the fourth Thursday in November a National Day of Thanksgiving in 1863, thereby establishing the National Holiday.
So come for homemade pumpkin pie in the farmhouse kitchen, horse-drawn wagon rides through the fields, visits with the farm animals, popcorn over the campfire and special living history farmhouse tours with costumed roleplayers. Admission $10 adult, $5 child/ Museum members $6/$3
December 20th A Victorian Christmas on the Farm 10 am -3 pm

Make a hand-dipped Christmas candle to take home, roast chestnuts over an open fire, and partake of gingerbread and hot cider in the farmhouse kitchen. Explore the barns and meet the farm animals.
