Chelmsford Historical Society Farm Fair
Come and see what life was like in the rural farming village of Chelmsford in earlier times. The Barrett Byam Homestead Museum will be open for self-guided tours of the house, its military room and a recreated old time general store. Outside there will be hayrides, pony rides and demonstrations of honey and cider making, as well as spinning, weaving and farming techniques, old and new. Children will have an opportunity to try out chores they would have been expected to do during Colonial times, including making their own apple juice.
Local farm produce, penny candy for the children, Chelmsford Historical Society books and collectibles and refreshments for all will be available for sale.
Musical folk group "Two Cat Folk and Friends" will entertain throughout the day.
For more information call Bernie Ready at 978-256-6058. Admission is free. Donations are gratefully accepted.
