A Special Note
about Historic Sugartown Day

We’re taking a year off! Over the years, our volunteers and staff have poured a lot of love and hours into this wonderful community event, and we greatly enjoy the spirit and enthusiasm generated by it.  However, because so much time and energy is devoted to Historic Sugartown Day, this one event has prevented us from expanding other necessary programs. It may well be that we’ll bring Historic Sugartown Day back in 2015. In the meantime, we hope you’ll attend some of our new programs and activities this year, or visit Historic Sugartown during our newly-expanded public hours. We always welcome your feedback about Historic Sugartown Day and our other programs at
