Explore history through your taste-buds! Participants will enjoy a five-course dinner with accompanying drinks while learning about the culinary traditions of the past. Our theme for the 2022 event was “Digging Up Dinner,” where we explored dishes and ingredients found in archaeological excavations from around the world.
This is a fundraising event to support the restoration of the 1739 Trimble House kitchen & pantry at Newlin Grist Mill.
Cost: $70/person. You must be 21 years or older to attend.

Tavern Night is a one-of-a-kind evening of 18th-century food, drink, and music. Participants will enjoy the warmth of the fire as they delight in a selection of flavors and aromas representative of those found in a colonial tavern.
All tavern goers will be served sample-sized courses of various foods and drink that are based on period receipts (recipes). A variety of punches, flip, and other beverages will be served along with fresh (non-alcoholic) cider. Period music, a live auction, and games will provide entertainment for the evening.
Proceeds from this fundraiser provide valuable internship opportunities for students wishing to pursue a career in history, museums, archaeology, and related disciplines.
Cost: $70/person. You must be 21 years or older to attend. Call the site at 610-459-2359 for reservations.
