Ice Cream Social this Saturday at Historic Christ Church & Museum

August 2016

Historic Christ Church & Museum will host an Ice Cream Social this Saturday, August 6, from 11:00 a.m. to 2:00 p.m. The event is free and open to the public. Children and their families are invited to explore colonial history, games, and crafts outside the churchyard while enjoying ice cream treats and lemonade. Activities include writing with quill pens, making whirligigs and ball and cup toys, bowling with nine pins, dressing in colonial clothing and excavating “shoebox” archaeological sites. Tours of the 1735 church will be available, and the museum includes several hands-on areas for children. Historic Christ Church & Museum also just opened a new exhibition, Robert Carter III’s 1791 Deed of Emancipation. For more information, please visit or call 438-6855.
