We all have an idea about what life was like in the time of the Pilgrims and around the time of the American Revolution, but what was it like during those years in between?

Our 18th Century Everyday Life program is specifically designed with the unique history of your town in mind. We have researched the history of all of the towns in Southeastern Massachusetts with a specific focus for this program on the dark ages of town history, the early 1700s. This was a time of change in every New England town. A time when people were learning how different and how similar they were to the people in the Mother country, England. Through the venue of a costumed interpreter who speaks in the language of the people of the time and who knows your town from an early 18th century point of view, participants will learn about the following topics:

-the layout of the town

-the Native American inhabitants of the town

-the industries and trades that were most popular in the town

-the foods eaten in the early 18th century

-how different and how similar life was then to as it is today

Participants are encouraged to ask questions of the interpreter and guide the conversation to areas that they are most interested in.
