May 7, 2017 – The Homestead Awakens! The Oliver Miller Homestead will open the 2017 season on Sunday, May 7 from 1:30 to 4:30 PM with The Homestead Awakens. Meet members of the Miller family as they go about their spring chores – 18th century style. Straw mattresses need stuffed, there are clothes to be washed, and clean curtains to be hung. A variety of wild greens will be made into a spring “sallet” in addition to whatever the cook decides to make at the open hearth. Some of the Homestead’s gardens will be in their spring glory while others will be ready to plant. All the 2017 special events will be previewed. Admission is $2 per person. Last admission is at 4:00 PM.
