An Ice Cream Social Celebrating
200th Anniversary of East Windsor Academy
The Grand Opening of the Osborn House
August 12, 2017
Come out and join the East Windsor Historical Society in celebrating the bicentennial of the East Windsor Academy and the opening of the newly restored Osborn House! Treat the kids (and yourself) to some delicious free ice cream provided by Tulmeadow Farm, while strolling the grounds and exploring the 5 unique, local museum buildings. Enjoy the sounds of the North Street Barbershop Quartet while wandering through the Broad Brook Barber Shop and neighboring East Windsor Probate Court Museums. Pause in the East Windsor Academy Museum and see local Native American artifacts and military paraphernalia. Don’t miss the historic post road marker near the rear entrance. Play the colonial “Game of Graces” or go on a hayride before taking a peek inside the Tobacco Barn which showcases farming equipment and is guaranteed to spark the interest of visitors of all ages. Finally, finish up in the newest museum addition, the showcase of the event, the newly restored Osborn House, where there will be special exhibits and demonstrations, such as the Hooks, Books, and Needles spinners & knitters. Don’t forget to preserve the memories at one of the photo-op or “snap a selfie” areas .
This event is free and open to all.
We hope to see you!
