William Cullen Bryant Homestead


Maple Days is a celebration of the year’s first agricultural harvest: maple syrup. An event for all ages, there are many things to do before or after breakfast! Activities include: a historic boiling demonstration with Dennis Picard located in the property’s 200-year-old sugarbush, a 19th-century outdoor cooking demo featuring Mrs. Bryant’s very own pancake recipe, an exhibit on the science of sugaring, and a community art project in the house! On March 10 and 16, Sawyer Farm’s draft horses will be making an appearance to demonstrate sap collection! We’ll also have historic games to play, special mini-displays on view on the first floor of the house, and maple storytime for kids in the study at noon each day of the program. Snowshoes will be available on a first come, first serve basis for traveling into the sugarbush.
