The Knowlton Township Historic Commission invites residents, visitors and friends to the RIVERSIDE FALL FESTIVAL.
Ramsaysburg's beautiful location on the riverbanks of the Delaware River, just off US Route #46, near the historic village of Delaware, is the perfect spot to experience early frontier life while taking in the colorful fall foliage. Tours will illuminate the rich history of this historic early settlement and will be available for those attending the event. Members of the Historic Commission will be on hand to meet and talk with visitors who are interested to learn about the history of Ramsaysburg and its important river trade role in the development of the area prior to John Blair’s railroads.
There will be live Bluegrass music, informal tours of the historic main building, barn, smokehouse and cottage with architectural historian Dennis Bertland, a smokehouse bacon demonstration by Myron Baley, pumpkin painting, corn husk dolls and a beanbag toss, plus storytelling by the campfire. Appetites will be tantalized with homemade chili and artisan breads, cider donuts and more.
A fun time for all!
