April Fool’s Tour at the Stone-Tolan House Historic Site

April 4, 2015 @ 12:00 PM - 4:00 PM


Visit this 200 year old tavern and farm house, and help identify the objects that don’t belong in the 1815 room settings.  Some will be easy to find (the lava lamp!) and others more of a challenge.

Poor Stone-Tolan. Those April Fools have been at it again. The oldest site in the county has been littered with things that do not belong. We’ve got to get it set right before all the 4th grade students arrive for their field studies – we don’t want the kids to think that Mrs. Stone did her hearth cooking by the light of a lava lamp!

Help us unravel the mess they have left behind at the April Fools tour on Saturday, April 4th. Identify the things that do not belong in the 1815 tavern, kitchen, and parlor bedroom. Some will be easy (the lava lamp, perhaps?) Some will be a bit of a challenge (what’s the date on that coin?) But it will all be fun – and there will be prizes! Adult admission is $5, and we’re offering a special rate for children under 18 – free admission (no fooling!)
