The Friends of Jerusalem Mill, in cooperation with the staff of Gunpowder Falls State Park, invite you to visit during our annual 18th century Colonial Craftsmen Weekend, when Jerusalem Mill Village hums with activities reminiscent of pre-Revolutionary War life. The event re-creates a rural 1770s market fair and encampment where goods can be bought, sold, or bartered, and where artisans and reenactors demonstrate age-old crafts and trades. Visitors will enjoy learning about life in David Lee's time and will also have the opportunity to purchase hand-made crafts and useful items for everyday life.
There are so many things to see and do!
Tour the historic mill village and the colonial tent town.
Meet and talk with living history interpreters.
Watch as meals are cooked over the fire or on the hearth.
Enjoy live period music.
Watch the blacksmith forge useful items and talk with the woodworkers as they build period furniture for the living history program.
Shop at the merchants' tents.
Enjoy Kids Kamp and period games.
It's a bit like Williamsburg, but a lot closer to home.
Please do not bring your pets to this event!
