The Lenape Village will be open this summer for one Sunday tour each month. The tour will include a walk-through of our recreated Lenape Village from the 1500’s, featuring a special hands on topic. The guided tour departs from the Visitor Desk at 2pm.
June 17th: Cooking
Learn about the cook methods used in the 1500’s. Try your hand at making corn bread; pounding corn from a kernel, to corn meal, and then into a biscuit form. Different foods will be cooking while you are there so you can see, smell and maybe taste food as it was 500 years ago.
July 22nd: Hunting
Learn what animals were around 500 years ago and what hunting tools were used by the Lenape of that time. Test your skills with our stalking game, dart and atlatl throwing.
August 19th: Family Life
Learn about daily life in a Lenape Village. Try on buckskin clothing, learn about the musical instruments available and play games; many are still played today! Finally, make a necklace and take it home with you as a souvenir of your time in our village.
Cost: $8 (Children 3 and under are free) ~ Members Free Pre-registration required
The tour will begin promptly at 2:00 pm and is the only tour of the day
