Savannah, Ga., January 28, 2013 – The Georgia Historical Society (GHS) invites you to join us for the annual Colonial Faire and Muster at Wormsloe State Historic Site on Saturday and Sunday, February 9-10, 2013, from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. Part of the 2013 Georgia History Festival, this event is free and open to the public.
Attendees at this Georgia History Festival tradition will experience everyday life during colonial times on the site of one of the earliest and most beautiful colonial-era plantations of the Georgia coast. Guests can visit the ruins of the plantation house and slave cabin, while costumed interpreters, colonial-era musicians, and a host of demonstrations (including cannon firings and cooking and craft techniques) evoke the spirit of colonial Georgia for visitors of all ages. A schedule of events is available upon arrival at the Faire and Muster, and will detail the many exciting activities that will be going on throughout the weekend.
“The staff at Wormsloe does an excellent job every year of organizing a nice variety of quality living history experiences for visitors. Programs like this create excellent learning opportunities for students of all ages,” said Dr. Todd Groce, President and CEO of GHS. “Wormsloe is a great resource for Georgians to see and experience what life was like for people in colonial times.”
This event is made possible by the generous donation of Gulfstream, with additional support from The Society of Colonial Wars in the State of Georgia.
