      Women's History Month Celebration
    • Saturday, March 31, 2018
    • Enjoy an entire day of free, family-friendly events celebrating Colonial women. From 10 a.m. to 4 p.m., Once Upon A Nation Storytellers will entertain guests with tales of how women helped to shape our nation. At 11 a.m. and 2 p.m., join Betsy Ross inside the House for a brief look at how a colonial bed is assembled and dressed and the role an upholsterer, like Betsy, has in the process. At both 1 p.m. and 2 p.m., meet Sarah Melton, a colonial businesswoman who worked as a "mantua maker" designing one-of-a-kind dresses for her clients in Philadelphia. In this interactive program, Breeches & Petticoats, visitors will learn about popular 18th century clothing styles and some will have the chance to dress the part.
