On Saturday, March 28 and Sunday, March 29, from 10am – 5pm, the Old Barracks Museum will break your winter cabin fever by reliving the winter of 1777-1778, when Washington’s troops were experiencing the harsh Winter at Valley Forge. The Old Barracks will host 18th century carpenters, bakers, tailors, shoemakers, hatters, gunsmiths, clerks, and members of the Hunterdon County Militia. Come see the scale at which production was happening in Trenton in 1778 in order to sustain the needs of the Continental Army. Artisans and tradesmen will be demonstrating all day, both days. All presentations are included in the regular cost of admission: $10-Adult, $8-Student/Senior, Free-Children under 6, Active U.S. Military, Members.
