Mabee Farm “Through the Woods” Tour

This program will take you “over the river and through the woods” on a journey back in time. We’ll begin with a candlelit walk through our nature trail with guides to provide orientation and share local tall tales. Guests will then be invited to warm themselves up with a tour of our historic structures. The Mabee tavern will be serving some tasty refreshments based on historic recipes and board games will be available for an evening of fun!
