Join us for an afternoon of history, craft demonstrations, and exploration at the Owens-Thomas House. The main floor of the house will be open for interpretive tours in which families will meet characters from the history of the house, including Mary Maxwell and the Marquis de Lafayette, and learn about tea and entertaining customs of the period. Visitors will see demonstrations of traditional methods of spinning and bread making and learn to play games like marbles that were likely played by both the enslaved children and the free children in the household. Families will also see a demonstration of the faux-finishing techniques used in the house and participate in a hands-on marbleizing activity.
