Jay and I are going to prep tomorrow for an event on Sunday up in Berks County. A little known gem, The Conrad Weiser Homestead. It has all the beauty of an estate, but its a stone house - like ours - built in the 1700's. There is a spring kitchen, outbuildings and even a pond! If you need quills for your letter writing, you can find the feathers there.
They are hosting a Colonial Craft Day and will be featuring several great people interpreting many trades/crafts of the 18th Century. Some of the people have portrayed blacksmiths, gunsmiths, horners, weavers and of course tools. Last year, at this event they even had a cobbler!
This is a rain or shine event, as they will open the big barn on the property for all the craft/trade tables.
They are also having an event Saturday. It is called Forest Diplomacy, and will feature many Native Americans. I hope to get a lot of new pictures to show off of the beautiful property and all the great trades people, when we visit on Sunday.
Do you have plans this weekend? What are they, Jay and I would love to know whats going on! Put your comment at the bottom of the post!
