(Weekends only) Visitors to Old Sturbridge Village will be greeted by the sweet smell of wood smoke mixed with maple syrup as historians demonstrate maple sugar making at the Village’s own working “Sugar Camp.” On weekend days in March, see maple sugaring as it was done in early 19th-century rural New England and learn why the final product historically was sugar, not syrup. See demonstrations of the traditional Native American methods, early 19th-century New England, 20th century metal buckets and contemporary tubing. Old Sturbridge Village is the largest outdoor history museum in the northeast and portrays life in a New England village in the 1830s.
(Dates are Saturdays, March 11, 18, 19, 25, 26 and April 1, 2017) Join us for guided tours of our sugaring operation including horse drawn and tractor drawn rides, tap a maple tree with the group, tree id, the history of mapling, attend a chef demo about cooking with maple, the NH Maple Museum and sample maple syrup, pickles and donuts.
More than 60 sugar houses across the state will participate in this open house weekend. Visit a sugar house near you and learn how maple syrup is made and the modern methods used to carry on this ancient tradition. Enjoy free samples, horse-drawn rides, sugar on snow, pancake breakfasts and more! Fun for the whole family.
The Connecticut Spring Antiques Show is a fantastic pre-1840′s antiques show. Collectors and historians will enjoy this look at our country’s past and an opportunity to own a piece of history. Come see what Antiques and The Arts Weekly calls “the singular popular showcase for American furniture and decorative arts.” Nearby, visit The Mark Twain House & Museum, the Harriett Beecher Stowe Center and the Connecticut Science Museum.
In Maine, always on the fourth Sunday in March, you can travel across the state to maple syrup farms and see firsthand how sap is magically turned into your favorite sugary topping. There are lots of free tastings and other activities, too.
