Join us at Tilly Foster Farm for a living history display on Saturday, July 14th from 10:00AM - 3:00PM. The grounds at Tilly Foster will feature a group of soldiers from 200 years ago as the The War of 1812 Reenactors mark the bi-centennial of this historic war.
Demonstration cannon firings will take place every hour on the half hour starting at 10:30AM; black powder musket firings will take place throughout the day. In addition, visitors will view exhibitions by Colonial craftsmen.
Smoke and noise will fill the air as the soldiers fire a 700 pound light artillery cannon.

The Whipple collection of rare and endangered farm animals will showcase Early American farm animals that cannot be seen by the public as a collection anywhere in the world except at the Tilly Foster Farm in Brewster. The collection this year has expanded to include:
Guinea hogs -- this critically endangered breeding pair was located at Saunders Farm in Vermont.
American Blue Rabbits -- the trio of critically endangered rabbits was located in Iowa and shipped to Tilly Foster in time for Easter.
Randall Lineback Cattle -- the rarest farm animals in the world are on display at Tilly Foster Farm. The herd has increased by three this year with two boys, Tillingham Foster and Rundell Bloomer, and one girl, Miss Tilly Foster.
American Mammoth Jack Donkey -- A descendent of the donkeys on President Washington's (who often stayed at Tilly Foster during the Revolution) Mt. Vernon Plantation. 'Nate' our resident donkey is famous for leading the Christmas parade up Main Street and for his notorious bray when separated from his beloved pony friend Cody.
