Join us for an
old fashioned Independence Day celebration at Schuyler Mansion! A variety of
18th century inspired activities may be sampled throughout the afternoon,
including demonstrations of candle-dipping, tin-smithing, and natural dying.
"Dr. Stringer," Philip Schuyler's physician, will discuss the fascinating
subject of 18th-century medicine.
include the Gratto Variety Show, that delights crowds with juggling,
stilt-walking and other amazing feats of daring, along with performances of the
historic Punch & Judy Puppet Show, presented by the Punch Bowl Sister and,
of course, Rural Felicity, who will regale the crowd with the Fife & Drum.
visitors can play Historic Cherry Hill's "Hudson River Trading Game,"
or visit the "Hands-On History" tent where children and their families may
enjoy signing the Declaration of Independence with quill pens, crafts, and
playing with colonial games and toys.
Mansion will be available for Open House (self-guided) tours from noon to 4:00
p.m. free of charge. Free Stewarts Shops ice cream, and a reading of the
Declaration of Independence will round out the holiday.
