Harriton House was built in 1704, years before the nation even existed. It housed all different kinds of residents during its time as a private home, but one of the most famous was probably Charles Thomson, the Secretary to the Continental and Confederation Congresses. He was the only man to hold this title. Today, the former residence serves as a living history museum, and at the end of the month, it will host The 28th Annual Harriton Farmstead Fair.
On Saturday, September 29th at 10 a.m., the day of festivities begins. Step back in time at the Farmstead Fair when you watch cabinetmakers and blacksmiths at work. Find a new statement piece for your home at the Harriton Attic Treasures Booth, a popular local flea market. Or just enjoy the live bluegrass music, grab some food and booze in the Beer and Sausage Garden, and take a tour of the Harriton House. Admission to the fair is free.
