Hope Lodge Skirmish

1777 WHITEMARSH ENCAMPMENT

November

Experience the life of a Revolutionary War soldier during the annual Whitemarsh Encampment event at Hope Lodge. Weekend activities include skirmish re-enactments, weapons demonstrations, Revolutionary-era church service, house tours, colonial crafts and food vendors. 

Highlands Hunt

HIGHLANDS HUNT BREAKFAST

November

Tally Ho! The grounds of Highlands Mansion will thunder with the hoof beat of an old-fashioned hunt each November. Although there are no foxes involved (the horses and hounds follow a scented bag), the thrill is not diminished. A traditional breakfast sourced from area bakeries is part of the morning's festivities.
