Old Home Day

Sat Oct 9, 2021
11:00am to 5:00pm ET
Historic Richmond Town

Head to Historic Richmond Town for the annual Old Home Day. Visitors can witness historic trade demonstrations, like blacksmithing, tinsmithing, carpentry, cabinet making, and more. Enjoy music, food, crafts, and sweet treats. 

The village is alive with the smell of fresh bread baking in the kitchen of the historic Guyon-Lake-Tysen farmhouse. Enjoy hearty soup served in the rear-yard of the Tavern. Visit with the tinsmith, carpenter, blacksmith, and basket-maker to discover how household items were made in the 18th and 19th centuries. Weavers, quilters, and tailors complete the image of a county seat from centuries past.

Timed-entry tickets are required and can be purchased in advance online.

Visitors ages 12 and up must be vaccinated to enter a building. Vaccination is not required for outdoor activities.
