Experience the traditions of an early 19th-century New England Thanksgiving. Learn about 1830s dining etiquette and watch the men of the Village compete in a post-dinner target shoot. Smell the scents of roasted turkey and pies warming by the fire. Hear the minister talk about the true meaning of Thanksgiving in the Village's historic Center Meetinghouse. Learn how preparations were made for this holiday meal.
Watch a slide show.
On Thanksgiving Day, consider joining us for either a Traditional Thanksgiving Feast in the Bullard Tavern or a Thanksgiving Buffet in the Oliver Wight Tavern. Both of these meals tend to sell out, so make your reservations early!
