The Historical Society of Hilltown Township will host an Open House and speaker program entitled “Gobble! The History and Lore of Thanksgiving,” on Sunday, November 10th, from 1:30 to 4:00pm, at the c1800 Strassburger Farmstead, NRHP, 407 Keystone Drive and Bethlehem Pike, Sellersville.
Thanksgiving is often described at the most quintessential of American holidays.
But the holiday we celebrate has roots that are older and deeper than the Pilgrims and Indians who appear in the American founding myth.
Join folklorist Dr. Darcy Fair to explore historical facts, fictions, traditions, foodways, home decorations, family time, religious observances and more.
Also, self-tour the homestead, barn, summer kitchen and museum.
Admission is free, but donations are appreciated. For info call 267-614-9174.
