Hearthside Dinners - where food and history unite

Photo Strip Picture


A cozy gathering of adults join in the preparation of a traditional 19th century dinner cooked on the open hearth. Museum Interpreters, dressed in period costume, guide guests as they learn about historic food preparation, ingredients and historic cooking tools.

The sounds and smells of the 19th century come to life as the fire crackles and guests learn to bake, churn, season, stir and roast seasonal foods to create an authentic farm supper. Once dinner is prepared, guests gather family style at the hearth table to relish in a savory meal and partake in lively conversation. The candles are lit, and the aroma of fresh roasted coffee and a sweet dessert linger in the air.
