On Saturday, March 31st, the Armoury’s main building (the new blacksmith shop) and the Anderson kitchen opened to the public. Under threatening (but ultimately accomodating) skies, the opening ceremonies went off without a hitch. If you were able to attend the event, you were in good company! If not, we hope you enjoyed the webcams that were positioned to catch much of the action. Below you will find some images capturing highlights of a memorable day. Clicking on the images will bring them up in a larger format. Enjoy!
In 18th century taverns, citizens exchanged ideas and opinions about the events of the day. The Tavern renews that tradition, featuring thoughtful commentary on current events and how they relate to American history and citizenship.
