The Deacon John Grave House and Grounds Again Participated in Connecticut Open House Day

OpenHouse1wFor this year’s Connecticut Open House Day on June 11th, Board members in colonial dress provided tours of the house, lectures on Colonial Clothing and a demonstration of Hearth Cooking to visitors from throughout the State. Despite the rain showers, the crowd marveled at the baking and open fire cooking. Especially interesting was a preview of how colonial men, women and children dressed. And of course the Secret Room was a hit.

The Event again reflected a renewed policy to tailor the Deacon John Grave House to community
events.
