Join the East Windsor Historical Society in celebrating the expansion of their Museums on the Green located at 115 Scantic Road, East Windsor. This annual event will feature a wide variety of activities for the whole family. There will be free ice cream provided by Tulmeadow Farms, pony rides for the kids, tractor and small engine displays as well as horse drawn wagon rides and pony rides. Guests can explore the redesigned exhibits in the five existing museums and then check in on the progress of the Barber Hill School House Museum, the newly acquired 40 acres and three barns!
There will truly be something for everyone at this event! Visitors can step back in time as they try on vintage hats and props generously on loan from the Suffield Players. Then off to play Colonial games such as “Whirligig” and “Game of Graces” with friends and family. Be serenaded by the North Street Barbershop Quartet while getting a free haircut by Sara Cook in the Broad Brook Barber Shop museum and be a guest at a free marriage ceremony on the steps of the historic courthouse museum.
In addition to its permanent displays, the Osborn House Museum will host a special author signing event and exhibit for the book, “For My Grandchildren” The Civil War Journey of Pierre Starr; Surgeon, 39th Ohio Infantry, which gives a first person account of the Civil War from a local surgeon’s perspective. And finally, special booths, exhibits and demonstrations will be scattered about the museum grounds featuring Enfield and Ellington Historical Societies, Wood Memorial Library & Museum and Bolton Farm Commission for visitors to explore at their leisure. Sylvia’s hot dog truck will also be on site for a quick afternoon snack.
