CANCELED: Wheat & Sheep Day
April 25, 2020 @ 12:00 pm - 4:00 pmFree – $8
Amid concerns about the potential spread of COVID-19, all public events, programs and tours at Washington Crossing Historic Park and all other Pennsylvania state parks have been canceled, effective immediately and lasting through April 30.
Roll up your sleeves and experience life on a colonial-era farmstead! At this family-friendly event, watch as the Thompson-Neely sheep are shorn of their wool using period-accurate techniques and tools.
You’ll also go behind-the-scenes of various colonial-era trades, see how sheep’s fleece was used by colonists for clothing, watch a cooper create barrels, and tour the Thompson-Neely House and the grist mill across the street, which were both part of an 18th century farmstead.
Admission to Wheat & Sheep Day, charged upon entry, is $8 for adults, $4 for children ages 5-11, and free for those under 5. Admission to Bowman’s Hill Tower and a tour of the Historic Village are included with the purchase of admission to Wheat & Sheep Day.
