October 2017 Events and Attractions at the NCCHP Museum
Saturday – Monday, October 7 -9  – The museum and Gift Shop will be open all three days of the 36th annual Granville Harvest Fair with tours, demonstrations, great food vendors and the very popular Westfield River Brewery beer tent.  Harvest Fair hours are:  Saturday and Monday, 10AM – 5PM; Sunday, noon to 5PM.  Demonstrations this year include: Erick the Blacksmith, small engines displays and drum making processes.  On Sunday from 12 – 3 the Forest Park “Zoo on the Go” will feature unique and interesting animals.  The Patton Catering food tent will be back again this year with a delicious variety of dogs, burgers, sausage sandwiches, soups and more.   New to our food court this year is Villa Mia featuring pizza slices, meatball and eggplant subs, spinach pies, desserts, apple pie and cookies.  Something for everyone!

Wednesday, October 18th at 6:30PM – The final Living History program of 2017 will be Walt Woodward and the Band of Steady Habits performing their “Handed Down In Song” musical program.   This collection of New England folk songs is from the “Helen Hartness Flanders Folk Song Collection” which now resides at Middlebury College in Vermont.  Mr. Woodward is the CT State Historian and has been a favorite NCCHP contributor for several years and the newly formed band was a huge hit last year.  Join us for an entertaining evening as these venerable tunes are brought back to life.  In the continuing tradition of New England folk music gatherings, audience participation is strongly encouraged!

The free Living History programs at the NCCHP museum are made possible in part thanks to a grant from the Granville Cultural Council and by donations from members and friends of the museum.  Thank you for your continued support in 2017.   Light refreshments will be served after the program.  

Guided tours of the NCCHP museum are scheduled for Sunday, October 22 from 12:00 – 3:00.  The museum is located at 42 Water St. Granville, MA in the historic buildings of the Noble & Cooley Drum Company.
