People of Pleasant Valley Tours     

Saturday, June 19 | 10:00–4:00 p.m.

The history of a rural farm community will be the focus of this program, which features tours of the houses in the Pleasant Valley Rural Historic District.

A Howell Farm interpreter leads visitors on a tour to the homes of gristmiller John Phillips, his farmer-son Henry, Henry’s blacksmith-son Lewis—as well as the Pleasant Valley one-room schoolhouse—and tells their stories along with those of other members of the community. Additionally, shorter tours of the Howell Farm farmhouse will be scheduled throughout the day.

People of Pleasant Valley Tours (90 minutes): 11:00, 2:00

Farmhouse-Only Tours (30 minutes): 10:30, 12:30, 1:30, 3:30

A children’s craft program will be available from 11:00 to 3:00 for a small materials fee.

**Please note that all 2021 Saturday programs will be modified to encourage social distancing and reflect current State guidelines for public events. Visitors are required to carry masks at all times, and wear them when social distancing isn't possible. Thank you for your understanding, and we hope to see you soon!
