Virtual Summer Saturdays: Food

July 25 @ 10:30 am - 11:30 am

Looking for some history at home?  Summer Saturdays is a great opportunity to get hands-on with history.  The Mason family wasn’t the only group of people living at Gunston Hall. There were also paid workers, indentured servants, people who were enslaved, and tenant farmers.  This week spend some time exploring the unique food culture that enslaved African Americans brought to the table.

Our Summer Saturday sessions will be recorded.  By registering for the event, you agree that your voice and image may appear in Gunston Hall’s digital materials.

Event Registration

This event is complimentary, but advance registration is required.  Multiple attendees may participate using a single device, so a family needs to register only once to attend.  Individuals who will be using the same device do not need  to register separately.

You will receive your Zoom login information in your registration confirmation email.  

Can’t make it that day?  We’re recording the sessions and will post them here after the live event.


If you would like to follow along with us during the program, you will need to collect the following supplies from around your house.  Some materials are available to download and print from this page:
