GEORGE WASHINGTON’S BIRTHDAY CELEBRATION
February 17 @ 1:00 pm - 4:00 pm
The Johnson Ferry House at Washington Crossing State Park — the only witness structure still standing that existed at the time of the 1776 Crossing — cordially invites all to a Washington’s Birthday Celebration to commemorate the birthday of our nation’s first president.
Learn some well-known and not-so-well-known “Facts and Quotes” about our first Commander in Chief and Founding Father. Ask our interpreters about the house and colonial life. Colonial education and quill pen writing will be ongoing in the upstairs bedchamber.
Gingerbread, one of Washington’s favorite treats, will be prepared and baked in the winter kitchen hearth. Refreshments of “1740” ginger snaps and punch will be available to all.
This is a great family event for school age children and above!
Come and go as you like as activities are ongoing. Parking and admission is free but a $5 donation is suggested to defray costs. For more information, please call 609-737-2515.
