- posted Mar, 25 2013
GLASTONBURY - On Tuesday, April 16 from 10 a.m. to 1 p.m., children ages 8 thru 12 are invited to prepare and enjoy a simple colonial style meal with their fellow peers. Leading this hands-on class will be curator Lin Scarduzio. Scarduzio will be dressed in colonial clothes portraying Jerusha Welles, wife of original owner of the 1755 Connecticut Valley River mansion, known today as the Welles Shipman Ward House. When children will arrive at 10 a.m. they’ll begin preparing their lunch which will be an ancient 18th century macaroni and cheese recipe. Kids will use the museum's interactive early American tools such as hand made bowls, rolling pins, wooden whisks, knifes (not sharp), spoons and of course the large open hearth. Admission is $15 and advance registration for this event is required. Space is limited; first come, first served. Please call 860-633-6890 to reserve a spot.
