The Harvest Day Celebration at the Schiele Museum's Backcountry Farm in Gastonia, N.C. is a living lesson in history.

Skilled re-enactors demonstrate an authentic 18th century version of our contemporary Thanksgiving, laboring by an open hearth, baking, and stewing a “grand fare” of traditional delights.

Museum Director Dr. Ann Tippitt explains why this popular annual event invites us to experience with all our senses life in another century.

The 2013 Harvest Day Celebration takes place on Saturday, November 23rd, 10 a.m. - 4 p.m.
