Annual Children’s Day

Annual Children’s Day

May 19, 2019

12:00 PM - 5:00 PM

Join us for Rockingham Historic Site’s Annual Children’s Day event. The site, which served as General George Washington's final wartime headquarters in later 1783, will be offering activities and demonstrations of 18th-century life with support from the Montgomery High School Live Historians Club and the Rockingham Association. Activities include trying on replica 18th-century clothing and learning to write with quill and ink; playing historic games like Battledore & Shuttlecock and Trap Ball, an early form of baseball; experiencing common activities like washing clothes and hanging them to dry, making crafts such as paper hats, epaulettes (shoulder decorations for an officer) and marbled paper. There will be basket-making and outdoor-cooking demonstrations. The house will be open for guided mini-tours and the garden will be available for perusing. The barn will be open and will be used to house some of the activities (especially if it rains).
