Colonial Tools and Gadgets that would have been part of everyday life in the mid-Cape centuries ago will be featured in a special Saturday exhibition at Josiah Dennis Manse on July 14 from 1-4pm.
Eighteenth and 19th century household and farm implements—including tools, utensils, agrarian equipment, and handy and essential gadgets—will be on full display both inside and outside the Manse. Visitors will learn what these important time savers were called and be challenged to guess what they were used for. Costumed docents and members of the Dennis Historical Society will be available to answer questions concerning these once important and useful tools, then at the forefront of what would have been colonial and early American technology.
If the weather is inclement on July 14, the event will be indoors only. Josiah Dennis Manse is located at Nobscussett Road and Whig Street in Dennis Village. Admission is free, with donations gladly accepted.
