Summer Saturdays

Explore history in different ways with this drop-in summer program.  Each Saturday will have a host of different activities around a different theme.  Savor history, dig in the dirt, and play games as we learn about the 18th century at Gunston Hall.

This program is included with regular admission and takes place on the grounds at Gunston Hall.

Adult Hearth Cooking Workshop

Join us in the hearth kitchen at Gunston Hall for the ultimate experience in slow food as you learn to employ 18th-century cooking techniques and recipes to create period dishes. Use your hearth skills to investigate complex recipes while cooking over an open flame, take a tour of the house and meet other food enthusiasts.

The workshop is a one-day session from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. Registration includes all materials and lunch. Please plan to wear clothing made from natural fibers, as you will be around open flame. These include cotton, linen, and wool. Stay away from garments containing polyester, nylon, acrylic, or lycra.


Registration for this in-person program opens on February 26, 2022.
