Independence Day at Living History Farms
Enjoy an old-fashioned Fourth with a historic Independence Day celebration in the town of Walnut Hill. Fun for the entire family including pie eating contests, foot races, spelling bees, watermelon seed spitting contests and more! Games begin at 11am; then enjoy historic entertainment and an 1875-rules baseball game. Hear the Walnut Hill mayor read the Declaration of Independence in the Church of the Land and march in a Victorian street parade. The Bluestockings, our 19th century baseball team, play at 2:30 pm.
