Educational Programs Schedule

  • March 10, 2024 – An Afternoon of Colonial Music
    • Music and dance played an integral role in colonial era life. Ballads relayed stories of love, bravery, and ordinary life. Dance was a way to socialize. Drum calls and fife tunes served an important military role. Come enjoy the program, tour the fully furnished c 1740 house, and stop in at the Frazee Kitchen where the cooks will be demonstrating 18th century open-hearth cooking using authentic early American techniques and recipes.
  • April 28, 2024 – Broom Making in Early America
    • Did you know that the inventory for the Miller-Cory House from 1802 includes 31 brooms? Brooms could be made by the broom maker, or a simpler version could be made by the homeowner. Learn how brooms were made from the garden to the finished product and see some examples of colonial brooms. The fully furnished c1740 farmhouse will also be open for viewing and the cooks will be demonstrating 18th century open-hearth cooking.
  • May 5, 2024 – Child’s Play on the Farm: Old-time Toys and Games
    • Did children in rural colonial New Jersey have time to play? Their first job was working hard alongside their families with the many tasks required of daily life on a farm. Still, they managed to find time in between chores to play and most houses had a few toys. Bring your children (or your own inner child) and join us at the historic c.1740 Miller-Cory House Museum as we demonstrate and play some old-fashioned games and showcase some interesting colonial-era toys. The cooks will also be busy cooking over the open-hearth using period recipes and techniques.
  • May 19, 2024 – Lenape Lore with Story time & a Craft
    • A special program highlighting the earliest inhabitants of New Jersey, the Lenape Indians. Various aspects of everyday life such as beliefs, families, home, food, clothing, medicine, and games will be presented. Storytelling was an integral part of Lenape society. Not only was it a way to pass along wisdom and cultural practices to the next generation, it also fostered a sense of community. The fully furnished c1740 farmhouse will also be open for viewing and the cooks will be demonstrating 18th century open-hearth cooking.
  • June 9, 2024 – Flag Day and Ice Cream Social
    • On June 14, 1777, the Second Continental Congress resolved that “the flag of the United States be 13 stripes, alternate red and white,” and that “the union be 13 stars, white in a blue field, representing a new constellation.” But did you know that many flags existed in colonial times? Come learn about some of these flags and the many versions the American flag that led to the flag we fly today. Cooks in period costume will also demonstrate eighteenth-century colonial cuisine with authentic colonial-era open hearth cooking using period recipes and techniques.
