Come one, come all to a celebration of the apple harvest at Windsor Historical Society! Did you know that there are over 7,500 different varieties of apple? And that apples are grown in every state? And that there is scientific evidence behind the old saying "An apple a day keeps the doctor away"? Discover more apple facts on November 5 from 10 AM to noon and from 1 to 4 PM.

 

Visit our hands-on Strong-Howard House and savor delicious smells of apple pies and apple butter. Our experienced hearth cooker will be happy to share her secrets with you. In our Hands-On-History Learning Center, taste different varieties of apples, complete a simple apple craft, and prepare your own delicious fall treat with dough, apples, and spices. You’ll leave with your own tart, instructions for baking it at home, as well as a historic recipe for apple pie.

 

Reserving your spot by Friday, November 4 helps us ensure that we have enough supplies, but we’ll be happy to see you even if you show up without a reservation! This program is supported by Windsor’s Stop and Shop on Kennedy Road.

 

$6 adults, $5 seniors and students, $4 members, $12 families.
