The Milford Preservation Trust will be opening the Minuteman House, aka John Downs House, at 139 North Street, for trick-or-treaters and guests of all ages, this Saturday, October 31, 2015, Halloween afternoon/evening, from 4:00 P.M. to 7:30 P.M.
The ghost of John Downs, Milford’s Minuteman and Diarist, as well as other colonial ghosts, such as that of Joseph Plumb Martin — who’d chronicled General George Washington at Yorktown — will be on hand to show an 18th century powder horn, musket, cannonball, hot coal carrier, an 1798 sampler, gridiron, waffle iron, butter press, and other authentic historic items.
This event is free of charge; however, donations to help restore the hearth and floors of the Minuteman House will happily be accepted! Cider and donuts will be available.
Please contact Michele Kramer, President, Milford Preservation Trust, at 203-314-9016, for additional information or questions. Thank you!
