Great family activity – build fairy houses, August 11

It’s August and time for a family outing. On Saturday, August 11, 2018, at the Mount Independence State Historic Site in Orwell, Vermont, enjoy an afternoon of “Building Fairy and Other Imaginary Houses.”  The activity runs from 1 to 4 p.m. and is included in regular site admission ($5.00 adults/free for children under 15).

Children accompanied by parents or a responsible adult are invited to drop in throughout the afternoon at our scenic picnic area. Be inspired by nature, the history of Mount Independence, or your own flights of imagination to use natural materials to build small “fairy houses,” a Revolutionary War star fort, or anything else at small scale. Site interpreters will be on hand to guide the activity.

Participants should check in at the museum and get directions. Bring a picnic, visit the museum, and go for a walk on the beautiful trail system while you are here.
