Colonial Day at Chace-Cory House

The Tiverton Historical Society invites you to step back in time to the early colonial inhabitants of Tiverton and enjoy Colonial Day at Chace-Cory House and grounds at Tiverton Four Corners from noon to 5 PM on Saturday, August 30, 2014. Local crafters and artisans will be exhibiting and/or demonstrating colonial crafts such as weaving, quilting, basketry, wood carving, rug braiding, sailor valentines, and more. There will be colonial games for kids of all ages, with croquet from noon to 2 PM, and others to play there or take home. There will be food and drink available for purchase, including a piece of homemade pie!

Please support the Tiverton Historical Society by coming to this educational and entertaining event at Chace-Cory House’s last open weekend of the season. No fee or ticket needed – free will donation to help us with the costs of our shingling and building maintenance that we have done and have yet to do…come see what we’ve done!

Carlton Brownell was instrumental in the restoration of Chace-Cory House and support of our Society. In his memory, we established a scholarship fund. We awarded two scholarships this spring to Roseline Martin from Tiverton High School and Dylan Mello of Little Compton. Congratulations! Our thanks to all who donated to the scholarship fund! ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
