Fall has come to Coggeshall! Celebrate the changing of the seasons during Fall at the Farm with our historians and animals. Coggeshall will be pulling in the harvest and preparing for winter all October by preserving crops, stockpiling firewood, and preparing the garden beds to rest. Play historic games, race through a hay maze, leaf peep on the new nature trail, and make classic 18th-century cornhusk dolls. Join our history educators for special in-depth timed talks, or spend your time visiting our animals and enjoying the autumn air on our salt-marsh farm. Kids can also search for clues in our trick-or-treat experience, Clues & Candy, a one-of-a-kind scavenger hunt.
Most activities happen throughout the day and visitors can explore at their own pace. Timed programs include:
All Hallows Eve 11:00 AM
Join our interpreters as they explain the history of the classic fall celebration and the surprising origins of the jack-o-lantern!
Which Witch? 12:00 PM
Women have been both accused of and celebrated of being witches for millennia. Learn the origins of some of the classic symbols of witchcraft and explore the history of New England witches.
Oh, My Gourd! Pumpkins and Other Fall Foods 1:00 PM
Celebrate the bounty of the harvest by learning about the uses and history of all our favorite fall foods.
Potent Potions 2:00 PM
Many 18th-century medicine cabinets were filled with a blend of traditional herbal remedies, superstitious potions, and newfangled scientific medicines. Join our interpreters for a talk on all the useful and not-so-useful cures that 18th-century farmers relied on.
