The Ramsaysburg Homestead is a historical park on twelve wooded acres along the Delaware River, just south of the Delaware Water Gap. The festival is free, rain or shine, with activities to include quilting exhibits, a ribbon-cutting of our newly established interpretive trail, Boy Scout demonstrations of pioneer skills, lace making, apple tasting, cider making, smokehouse demonstration with Myron Baley's famous bacon, woodworking exhibitions, and more. Humpty Juniors will be offering tasty, seasonal refreshments. At 2pm East Stroudsburg University Associate Professor of History Martin Wilson will present “Resorts Along the Delaware.”
This annual event will have extra special meaning as Knowlton Township Historic Commission (KTHC) is celebrating twenty years of service and accomplishments since its founding in 1997. Former Mayor Frank Van Horn and Former Deputy Rene Mayor Mathez will be honored for their contributions in forming KTHC and the Ramsaysburg Historic Homestead property.
