Print this Page


Saturday September 9, 2017
11:00 AM - 5:00 PM

On Saturday, September 9, 2017 from 11 am to 5 pm, the General will be in residence once again at Rockingham.  David Emerson of History on the Hoof will portray Washington during his stay in the area, looking back on the trials behind him, at the tasks at hand, and the impending future of long retirement from public life (or so he thought!).  Three main rooms of the historic house will be open for visitors to "meet" the General and interact with him throughout the day.  Accompanying him will be the Life Guard, a group of officers who served as his formal escort, portrayed by members of Historical Military Impressions.  There will be outdoor displays of military clothing and equipment and musket firings demonstrations.  In keeping with the spirit (if not the specifics) of the entertaining the Washingtons did at Rockingham, there will be outdoor pit-hearth cooking demonstrated by Diane Lingsch and an all-day variety of programming provided by Heart to Hearth Cookery on 18th-century ice cream, or "creamed ice" as Washington described the delicacy he enjoyed.
 
The event is free, but donations to Rockingham are always welcome!  There will be refreshments available, and the Museum Store will be open.  Come one, come all to meet the General, who was about to "take his ultimate leave, in a short time, of the Military Character, and to bid a final adieu to the Armies he has so long had the honor to Command." 
 
Rockingham is located on Rte. 603 (Laurel Ave./Kingston-Rocky Hill Rd.), one mile north of Rte. 27 in Kingston and one mile south of Rte. 518 in Rocky Hill.  Visit the website, www.rockingham.net for further information.

2 p.m., Buried secrets, blackmail, and false identities race onto the stage in Simpatico, a tragicomedy about the slippery netherworld of thoroughbred racing from Pulitzer Prize-winning dramatist Sam Shepard.
