Civil War Trooper's Muster
Well, we are ready to have another Trooper Muster this coming summer. We hope you can join us and make this the best Trooper Muster ever! Those of you who came in past years know what fun we had. This 35-acre site of gently rolling farmland is the location of a restored 19th century farm and The Brickhouse Museum, which is a restoration of the original brick farmhouse located on this site. The layout consists of open fields and woodlands, which are ideal for fifing and drumming and camping. The site has been used for Civil War reenactments and for filming of a television series about the Civil War.
Our muster will begin at 1:00pm on Saturday. The Brickhouse Museum will be opened to the public (nominal fee) with exhibits of period farmhouse decor and furniture. Also, there is a blacksmith shop and a sawmill on the premises with free demonstrations.
We will provide a muster meal at suppertime for the participants and food will be sold at concessions run by the volunteers of the Farmers Museum throughout the muster. Saturday night we will continue our tradition of the “Jam Session Buffet”, which arrives just when you need extra energy to keep playing, featuring a second full buffet of hot foods and tasty deserts. The volunteers will also sell breakfast on Sunday morning.
Camping is available on Friday and Saturday nights on the museum grounds. There will be porta-johns and water but no shower facilities. Campers and Motorhomes are welcome. Checkout time is a prompt 12:00pm Sunday.
