Join reenactor Tom Hunt at John Jay Homestead for a fun presentation about American history!

Are you interested in learning more about what life was like in New York during the colonial era? Then make sure to stop by John Jay Homestead on Saturday, October 8, between 11am and 1pm for a presentation from reenactor Tom Hunt about what it was like to prepare for winter in the 18th and 19th centuries. From pickling to drying to salting and smoking, Tom will discuss and demonstrate many of the techniques used in early American food preservation. Admission is free.

This family-friendly event will be held alongside the Homestead’s weekly Farm Market and is a great opportunity for history lovers of all ages to learn more about how our ancestors survived the frigid winters in New York State. Feel free to bring your questions!
