“A Cel­e­bra­tion of Barns” is the theme of Old Stone House Day on Sun­day, Au­gust 12, from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. Ev­ery­one is in­vited to come see the new tim­ber frame barn that was raised on June 9 be­side the Old Stone House. Inside will be an ex­hibit of pho­to­graphs of old barns from around the county.

All day on Sun­day there will be demon­stra­tions of tra­di­tional skills like black­smithing, gran­ite cut­ting, spin­ning, quilt­ing, dec­o­ra­tive paint­ing, bas­ket mak­ing, rug hook­ing, and more. There will be craft sales, a farm­ers mar­ket, old fash­ioned chil­dren’s ac­tiv­i­ties, mu­sic, lunch, ket­tle cof­fee, pie à la mode, a one-day raf­fle, wagon rides and stage coach rides. From 11 a.m. to 3 p.m. the mu­seum will be open for free self­guided tours. At noon a team of horses mow hay on Prospect Hill. At 2 p.m. there will be a pie auc­tion at the Hall House. At 3 p.m. there will be a Barn Dance in the new barn, with the North Coun­try Swingers start­ing the square dance, and then invit­ing peo­ple to join in.

There is no ad­mis­sion charge, but park­ing is $5 per car, at the base of Prospect Hill and in the field be­side the Twi­light House. Hand­i­capped and se­nior park­ing is next to the Twi­light House, and peo­ple can be dropped off in front of the Old Stone House.
