Guests visiting our historic sites see lovely, pristine homes in fair order. But, did you ever wonder about the messy parts of life? Take a guided tour with a member of Historic Foodways to explore the often private world of food preparation in an 18th-century city. Guests will visit a variety of original out-buildings and sites, including smoke houses, dairies, kitchens, and bake ovens. Learn what it was like to live and work as a cook and prepare food across the hierarchy of society. Reservation required. Space is limited to 25. Please gather in front of the Governor’s Palace 10 minutes prior to the start of the tour time.
