Meet history face to face
The Colonial Heritage Festival offers something for every member of the family. Visit colonial artisans, exhibits, demonstrations, & join in the great debates, public trials, & storytelling in the Old South Church. From our Mayflower replica to John Smith’s Armor and the Colonial School, children will be attended to by teachers from the Alpine School District. Children will be able to play Colonial games & participate in the daily children’s chores. Military enthusiasts can visit the gun displays, experience the cannon firing on the green and watch military skirmishes between the Continental Army & the British Redcoats. Join the Culper spy ring & help get messages to the key players in the battle, but be careful or you could end up in the pillory. Exhibits include the apothecary shop, blacksmith, cooper, broom maker, gunsmith, spoon maker, potter, bobbin lace maker, silhouette cutter , chandler, Isaiah Thomas Print Shop, women’s boutique, home life, frontier life, & much more.
