Special Thanks to all who helped!
At Heritage Days on September 10th and 11th, the Society hosted an impressive new addition to our programming with a Living History Town Hall on the grounds of the Emmanuel Church, featuring historians protraying Colonial and Revolutionary era luminaries. George Washington reviewed militia troops, historical craft demonstrations and military units entertained all who attended.
Our sincerest thanks and best wishes go out to all who contributed their time, talent and resources to this spectacular reset for Heritage Days. Moving forward, ACHS is pleased to take on the challenge of refining and expanding the return of heritage to this great event.

Plan ahead for these events
ACHS is already decorating Gordon Roberts House for a fun reprise of a popular 2021 event. Turns out, Victorians loved Halloween and so did the folks who attended our Megan Jean “Dem Bones” Party last year. This year, our fun fund raiser returns in all its Steam Punk glory.
