The Haddam Historical Society will hold its popular summer program TWICE in 2024, “A Week in the Life of an Early American Child,” from Monday, June 24 – Friday, June 28, 2024 and August 5-August 9 from 9 am to noon each day. The program is offered for girls and boys ages 8 – 12.

Students will travel back in time to the year 1830 and spend the week with Mrs. Thankful Arnold and her family. All activities take place at the Thankful Arnold House Museum in Haddam, and they include caring for farm animals, crafting with wool, making butter, baking, playing with Colonial toys and games, and even dancing! The fee is $159 for the five days with all materials and snacks included. Some scholarship funding is available.
