The Wallingford Historic Preservation Trust will host an Open House and "Historic Craft Demonstration" on July 22 from 1-3 pm at the Franklin Johnson Mansion, 153 South Main Street, Wallingford. 

The Lebanon Militia (see will be featured, portraying historic 18th century characters and demonstrating historic skills and crafts. These include a spinner, a basket weaver, a weaver with a loom, and a leather worker. Two "Men at Arms" will demonstrate black powder muskets, rifles and pistols. A Militia member will also portray a military surgeon with replicas of medical equipment and describe medical procedures of that era. We are grateful that they are putting on this wonderful demonstration at our museum.

It is open to the public and free, although donations are greatly appreciated. There is parking at the Mansion and more parking behind the Town Hall.
