The Famous Wentz Family: Local Families During the American War for Independence

You know about George Washington, Thomas Jefferson and other famous revolutionaries, but did you know that locally there was a family who was just as famous during their time? Join us for a hand-on event where you'll "meet" the famous and wealthy Wentz Family: Peter, John, and Abraham. Students will also see how they lived compared to others at the time of the American War for Independence. At the end, you can try on clothing and have your picture taken by family.

Presented by: Kimberly Boice, Museum Educator at the Peter Wentz Farmstead.

For elementary age students. No registration.
