CCHA's 9th Annual Heritage Day

Rachel RR

Ever wanted to experience every day life in the 1700s? Those who love history and are looking for a beautiful place to visit on a fall day won’t want to miss Heritage Day at the Burwell-Morgan Mill!  The event will offer fascinating demonstrations on how people in the colonial era did fundamental activities such as food production (milling wheat and corn), woodworking, hands-on sewing demonstrations, and cooking. There will also be kids’ games, fresh apple and pear cider, and an encampment of Revolutionary War re-enactors from the Second Virginia Regiment. All activities will be inside or right outside the Mill and if it’s a nice day, we’ll spread out to our lovely meadow.

Dress warmly, wear sturdy shoes, and bring your friends and family for a fun day in Millwood!
