Hempsted Houses host Thanksgiving event Saturday
Connecticut Landmarks' Hempsted Houses will open their doors in a celebration of a traditional Thanksgiving harvest from 1 to 4 p.m. Saturday at the sites at 11 Hempstead St., New London.
Visitors can watch as a hearth cooking expert prepares a fresh meal over the fire. They can ask questions about traditional colonial foods or cooking methods, and try the food for themselves. They can see members of the Hempsted Youth Group make cider and can join them to play historic games on the lawn. Light refreshments will be served.
The event is free and open to the public. It is sponsored by the Chester Kitchings Family Foundation.
