American Independence Museum Celebrates George Washington's Birthday
On Saturday February 18, 2012, American Independence Museum is celebrating George Washington's 280th birthday at the Folsom Tavern in Exeter, NH from 10am to 2pm. Families are invited to enjoy 18th Century music, learn to dance the Minuet, crafts, games, and of course, Birthday Cake! Special prizes will be awarded for children dressed as George or Martha Washington.
The Museum's Program Coordinator, Stephanie Hewson, has invited a special guest for the celebration, Mr. President himself, who will make his appearance between 11am and 1pm. Find out for yourself if young George actually cut down a cherry tree with his hatchet or if he could throw a silver dollar across the Potomac River. Everyone will have time to ask him questions, pose for photographs and help him blow out the candles on his cake!
Reservations are requested for this event so the staff may prepare for the party. Admission is $7 per person and $5 for museum members. To reserve your space, visit the Calendar page at independencemuseum.org or call 603-772-2622. Folsom Tavern is located on the American Independence Museum's campus at 164 Water Street in downtown Exeter, New Hampshire. It is the mission of American Independence Museum to connect America's Revolutionary past with the present.
