“On the Fourth of July, the whole family can step back-in-time at the Homeplace and learn the history behind this important holiday as celebrated in the 1850s,” says Charlotte Huggins, Interpreter at the Homeplace. “Relive a time of political speeches and community-wide picnics. We welcome everyone to join us under the shade trees, have a cool slice of watermelon, and lend a hand making ice cream using a recipe from The Homeplace History and Receipt Book. Bring lawn chairs, blankets, and picnic baskets to make a day of it.”

The Homeplace 1850s Farm represents a two-generation family farm. Visitors mingle with interpreters clad in period attire going about their daily chores.
