Revolutionary War Living History Weekend


See history come alive at the third American Revolutionary War Living History Weekend, Saturday May 22 and Sunday May 23, 2021 at the Boulton Historic Site and Jacobsburg Historical Society. Watch marching, drills and daily skirmishes with the British. Experience camp life complete with open-hearth cooking. Visit the sutlers tents, where you can buy hand-made colonial wares; watch as Makers and Merchants demonstrate their crafts; enjoy colonial music – and sample food and drink provided daily by Mad Js BBQ and The Colony Meadery. And don’t miss our JHS Garden Annual Plant Sale! Add some green to your indoor or outdoor garden areas, or donate your extra growth to help us raise funds. Fun for the whole family!
