The event will be a fun time for friends and families.

A historic area in Bucks County is giving locals and visitors the chance to see and partake in a common activity from Colonial-era America.

Explore life on a colonial-era farmstead at Washington Crossing Historic Park’s “Wheat & Sheep Day,” being held on May 13 from 10 AM – 4 PM at the park’s Thompson-Neely House & Farmstead.  

During this event, attendees will see sheep being shorn of their winter wool coats and then follow the process of washing and carding the wool and spinning it into yarn. Children will receive a take-home activity kit filled with colonial crafts. Tours will also be given of the restored Thompson-Neeley Grist Mill.  

Shearings will be held on the hour starting at 10 AM and mill tours on the half hour from 11:30 – 2:30. Attendance is limited to 150 people and registration is required for this pay-what-you-wish event, with a recommended fee of $7.

The Thompson-Neely House & Farmstead is located at 1638 River Road in Solebury Township, at the intersection of Route 32 and Aquetong Road.
