Old Home Day
After a brief stint as the Great American Harvest Fest, Old Home Day returns to Historic Richmond Town.
A family favorite for generations, Old Home Day returns this October featuring historic trades demonstrations, music, food, crafts, and sweet treats. Old Home Day’s roots can be traced back to the 1950s, when objects from the historical museum’s collection were brought outside to the lawn along Court Place, and visitors could enjoy demonstrations of carpentry, metalsmithing, and fiber arts.
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.
