The chill in the air can only mean one thing at Coggeshall – Maple Sugaring season is about to start. Bundle up, and join us as we showcase historic methods of maple sugaring and talk about how this New England tradition ties into a variety of topics from abolition to international shipping. Then, warm up by the hearth and enjoy hot cider and authentic johnnycakes.
Maple Sugaring is a decade-long tradition at Coggeshall and the first major event of the year. In addition to demonstrations, the Coggeshall Museum Store will be selling honey from hives on our property and maple syrup made with sap tapped from the maple trees along Colt Drive.
Public hours are 10am-4pm, February 21-26, March 4-5, 11-12, 18-19. This event is included in normal admission prices and is free for Coggeshall Members. For more information about Maple Sugaring, please contact Eleanor at email@example.com.
