An event every month that begins at 10:00 am on day Last of the month, repeating until October 29, 2022

Get a closer look at trades of the 18th century in Newlin’s “History at Work” series. Members of Newlin Grist Mill’s staff, volunteers, and outside artisans will demonstrate their crafts and talk with visitors about how different trades and skills were integral to life in colonial Pennsylvania and to the operation of Newlin Grist Mill. The final two demonstrations of the 2022 series will highlight cooking and baking, using receipts (recipes) from Richard Briggs’ 1788 book, The English Art of Cookery.

  • October 29th – at the Bake Oven behind the Miller’s House, with Programs Manager Laura Adie.
  • November 19th – in the Trimble House kitchen with Laura and special guest food historian Marc Meltonville, who is currently writing a book on Richard Briggs.

“History at Work” is free and open to the public of all ages. In 2022, the program will take place on the last Saturday of the month from April through October, 10 am–3 pm.
