History comes to life on September 17, when the Conference House Association commemorates the 1776 Peace Conference which was held in the historic Conference House.

Costumed Colonial dancers are accompanied by live 18th Century music and balladeers. You can peek at the vegetables growing in the Colonial Kitchen Garden and an Attic Treasures Boutique.

Various 18th-century craftspeople demonstrate Colonial era trades such as woodworking, coopering, tin smithing, beekeeping, chair caning, spinning, and weaving. Visitors see demonstrations and learn about various crafts.

Colonial cooking is demonstrated at the outdoor open hearth fires by the dedicated members of the Conference House Auxiliary. They will share Colonial recipes for cornbread and soup. Modern-day snacks will be available for purchase.

The 1776 event offers a day when people can step back in time to examine, experience, and appreciate various aspects of 18th-century life.  Visitors will be able to share aspects of our American Heritage that are not normally evident or considered in everyday modern life.
