Join the Coggeshall staff as we prepare a Thanksgiving meal in our historic farmhouse.  The late 18th century was before the official start of Thanksgiving as a national holiday, but the day was still celebrated with food and prayer in New England. Costumed historians will make a full meal and show some of the prep work in preparing for a day of thanks.  In the woodshop, we will also display the making of wooden plates and spoons. In the garden, we will demonstrate the last of the fall harvest and putting the garden to bed.  Bring your family for a fun day at the farm and get in the Thanksgiving spirit.
