Hands On History: Make an 18th Century Scented Ornament
Saturday, December 1, 2018
1:00 p.m.–4:00 p.m.
Oranges were a special fruit for 18th and 19th century Americans, since they could only get them during the winter months. Some of those oranges were used to make pomanders, a spiced, scented ornament that decorated their homes and filled the house with a lovely aroma. Make your own pomander at King Manor, then visit the rest of the museum and learn about Rufus King - Founding Father and early voice in the anti-slavery movement.
Recommended for ages 3 and up, adults also welcome!
