Hunt Cabin Open House


Starting in February we are opening the Hunt Cabin once a month.  These are pictures from our first event.
We had about 60 guests over the course of the time (10 am to 2 pm) and we had fun eating popcorn cooked on the fire and drinking apple cider warmed on the hearth.  There was dancing, storytelling and playing  fun (and historically appropriate) games.
Our next open houses are
