Programs at Historic Walnford, Monmouth County Park System

Sleigh Selfies               December 1,2                                     1 - 4 p.m.
We’ll provide a pretty red sleigh in front of a dark green holly tree along with a variety of fashionable 19th c. style hats; you bring the smiling faces and your camera to create a charming Currier & Ives style image. Please no professional photographers.

Samplers                    Sunday, December 9                            1 - 4 p.m.
Samplers might be considered historical documents written with needle and thread.
This special display of local samplers in a private collection is a show and tell of fine needlework and research in to the lives of the young women who stitched these carefully preserved pieces.

Peace and Quiet          Seven days a week                              8 a.m. - 4:30 p.m.
Do you need a break from holiday hub-bub? Take a little time to refresh yourself with the subtle beauty of our winter landscape. Enjoy the understated elegance of a grand Quaker house that did not celebrate Christmas with carols or decorations; open upon request any day between 9 a.m. - 4 p.m.

Historic Myths Busted     Saturday and Sunday afternoons, Jan. 5 - 20      1 - 4 p.m.
Sorting historical fact from fiction can be difficult. Come and give it a try!
Do we record and remember history as it was or as we wish it had been?
We will explore and explain some common misunderstandings along with fun facts and credible accounts of the past.
