Historic Foodways
From meals cooking over open hearth fires, to exclusive historic dining experiences, there's always something to see, smell, and event taste, in the Historic Village.

Historic Kitchens

Each day, costumed historic interpreters trained in the culinary arts of the 1800s staff several kitchens. Very different food is cooked in each of these kitchens based on the buildings’ era and original location, the socio-economic status of the owners, and the season. Step inside to immerse yourself in the sounds and smells of cooking in the 19th century! 

Historic Dining Experiences
