Colonial Kitchen Demonstrations

This program runs from December 3 - January 14, 2018.

History is here! Adding another layer of experience to a visit to the Great Trains Holiday Exhibit at the Wilton Historical Society, Sunday afternoon visitors can immerse themselves in a typical Colonial task in the 1740 Betts Kitchen. Sisters Kate Gluckin and Sarah McCullough, both experts in Colonial domestic arts, will be demonstrating cutting, peeling and drying apples for a Marlborough Pie; grinding spices; sewing and embroidery; butter churning and dough kneading; wool carding and spinning and more from 1:00 – 3:00 on Sundays, December 3, 10, 17 and January 7 and 14. Kids can try their hand at these tasks, too! Please check website for details. No charge. All ages.
