To commemorate Salem’s stop on the General Lafayette’s farewell tour of the U.S. 200 years ago, please join us for a Red White and Blue Picnic in the Chestnut Street Park across from Hamilton Hall on August 31 from 2:00-4:00pm.

Pre-order picnics available from Jolie Tea Company at www.istheteainyou.com or bring your own!

While we await Lafayette’s arrival via horse and carriage, guests are welcome to picnic in the park, make historic ribbon flair to wear in celebration of the day, play popular 1820s games and revel with living history interpreters. Hamilton Hall will be open for self-guided tours and as a rain location.
