Harvest Festival: Celebrating Apples, Richard “the Duke” Stockton’s Cider, and Morven’s Heritage Cooks

Oct 26, 2019 @ 1:00 pm - 4:00 pm

Free

Richard  “The Duke”  Stockton, (1790-1837) wrote proudly of his “cider as fine as wine.” This October, Morven celebrates its second generation of Stocktons with a free family day highlighting Morven’s apple orchards, heritage cooks, and harvest time activities popular in the late 18th and early 19th centuries.

The day’s activities include costumed reenactors and hands-on demonstrations, including cider making, distilling, and cooking. There will be pickling, preserving and sweetmeats demos. Foodways to America and the important role of enslaved people in bringing new foods to this country will be recognized. Families will enjoy live period music and try the dances of the time.  Take-home crafts for all ages include making corn husk dolls and printing with apples. The museum will be open and free to the public from 1:00 to 4:00 p.m.
