Presented By Classic Brands

(Chillicothe) — Colonial days will be revisited at the Adena Mansion and Gardens in an event called- “The Worthington’s and the Revolution” – Saturday, June 19th from 10am-3pm, at the Visitor Center.

Children completing grades four through six are invited to join the Daughters of the American Revolution and the Ogle Company of the Militia at Adena Mansions and Gardens for a day of fun and learning about colonial times.

The day will begin with presentation of the flag by the Ogle Company and a round of shots. Throughout the day, participants will play games and enjoy food from the era of the American Revolution. These games were later played by the Worthington children and the “soldiers’ food” is the same the elder Worthington males ate while in the wilderness and defending the colonies. Children will have the opportunity to practice crafts and cooking that were practiced in the colonies and at Adena.

Thomas Worthington was a surveyor and frontiersman. Children will learn the skills and techniques used by those early surveyors, and see the tools used. A Revolutionary War Soldier’s routines and daily life will be shared with the children by a member of the Militia. Additionally, the children will learn about the Worthington family’s connection to the Revolutionary War.

Lunch will be served to participants and they will take home to share the crafts and foods created throughout the day.
