LIVING OFF THE LAND: FOOD, FARMS AND FAMILIES
Today's "local food movement" is a popular trend, but is really nothing new in communities like ours where getting fresh fruits, vegetables and eggs from local family farms has been a prominent feature of community life since colonial days. LIVING OFF THE LAND explores how local farming and food production have changed over time and how agriculture continues to contribute to the character and quality of life of our community and our region. This self-guiding exhibition features objects, photographs and recipes to tell the story of farming in Old Harrison Township.
Old Town Hall Museum is open October 13 – December 9, 2018, and March 16 – May 19, 2019. Private tours can be arranged at other times by contacting the Society. Admission is free.
