Lenape Lore with Story time & a Craft – May 19th

(above) Join us for one of our most popular programs, Lenape Lore on May 19 from 2-4 p.m.

Lenape Lore at the Miller Cory House

Join us for a special program highlighting the earliest inhabitants of New Jersey, the Lenape Indians. Various aspects of everyday life such as beliefs, families, home, food, clothing, medicine, and games will be presented. Storytelling was an integral part of Lenape society. Not only was it a way to pass along wisdom and cultural practices to the next generation, it also fostered a sense of community. The fully furnished c1740 farmhouse will also be open for viewing and our cooks will be demonstrating 18th century open-hearth cooking. Children can enjoy story time and a craft. Admission is $5 ages 13 and older; $4 ages 3-12 and free age 2 and younger. No reservations are necessary.
