Todd’s Inheritance open for the weekend
Todd’s Inheritance will be open on Saturday, Oct. 16 and Sunday, Oct. 17! This month the historic site is focusing on imagining farming at the Todd house during the 19th century through the farming ledgers. Within large and antique ledgers, you will see the handwriting of Todd members from the past and their life on the farm documented within the books.
Please feel free to bring your little ghosts and goblins to the museum full of local history, artifacts from indigenous tribes, and artifacts during the War of 1812 and beyond. The newest addition to the museum is the new electronic display of the War of 1812. Visitors will be able to view video re-enactments as well as Interactive battlefield maps and detailed timelines. Once you finish your tour of the house guests can explore the grounds, and of course the graveyard, because what is October without a spooky visit to the cemetery?
Admission is $10 for adults 18+, $7 for seniors 63+ and free for children under 17. The hours are 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. on Saturday and 11 a.m. to 4 p.m on Sunday.
