Tenant House Mysteries - Canceled - Watch for new date

Saturday, April 1, 1:00 p.m.

Norma Hoffman Visitors Center, Huntley Meadows Park

$5 registration fee

The renovation of the Tenant House has demonstrated that many presumptions about Huntley are incorrect. For instance, the Tenant House wasn’t a late addition to the property - it was built close in time to the Huntley villa. The work has revealed architectural surprises about the structure’s original purpose and use and whether it even is a tenant hosue at all.  Learn about what’s been discovered during the renovation and join a lively conversation about what the discoveries mean, led by architectural conservator Sarah Rogers.

The theme of this year’s event is “Discover All Eras of Huntley,” from the early 19th century to today.    This event will be open to the public.  Discover what Huntley was and how it changed through time. Learn about its federal-style architecture and its life as a country retreat for Thomson Mason; its time as a Civil War encampment by Union soldiers; its transformation into a dairy farm; and its post-WWII time as a commuter home for Colonel Amlong and his family.

Come prepared to sleuth through Huntley documents, maps, and artifacts; tour the house; make ice cream and butter; and snap a selfie with Huntley the Cow.
