Celebrate the 160th birthday of the historic Colonel Palmer House, listed on the National Register of Historic Places.  Henrietta and Gustavus Palmer    will welcome you to their new, stately home that was expertly crafted by architect and mason Andrew Jackson Simons.  Learn about the construction of the home, including the ongoing efforts to preserve and restore the cobblestone foundation in a historically property manner.  Join us for a barn raising, wagon rides, farm life, and family legacies.
