Our House Egg will be available at the Homestead on Charter Day, March 12. This egg was made for us by our good friends at Robesonia Redware and is only available through the Homestead. This is our second egg in a series. Cost is $25.00. A limited number of the first egg, the Turtle Egg, are still available. Please stop by and take in a great day of history on Charter Day and shop in our Museum Store before you leave.  If you want an egg but can't make it to the Homestead, please call and we'll make arrangements to ship to your address.

Charter Day, March 12, 2017, is quickly approaching.  Charter Day is our biggest Living History event of the year.  Please come at noon and join us in a proper 18th century Divine Service followed by demonstrations, military drills, and talks by soldiers, campfollowers, natives, and artisans. Charter Day runs from 12 to 4:30 p.m.  Guided tours of the site will be available.

Bus Trip

The Friends are sponsoring a bus trip to Philadelphia to visit the new Museum of the American Revolution. The Museum, opening in April 2017, is in the historic heart of Philadelphia, the city that served as the headquarters of America’s founding. The bus will leave the parking lot of the Conrad Weiser Middle School at 8:00 a.m. on Saturday, May 13, 2017. The trip includes entry into the museum, a special museum program on “Philadelphia—A Revolutionary City,” a catered box lunch, and free time to explore and enjoy the museum at your own pace. The bus will pick up travelers outside the museum at 4:30 p.m. for the return trip to Womelsdorf. Cost of the trip is $75.00. Reservations are being accepted by the Friends until April 15. Reservation forms are available below or at the Visitors Center.
