50th Anniversary Museum Season Opening Weekend

Mar 27, 2022 in Events

Join us for our 50th Anniversary Museum Season Opening Weekend with the 44th Georgia Company C presenting a Civil War Camp of Instruction; Saturday & Sunday, May 14 & 15, 2022 10am-4pm. See history come alive as the 44th Georgia presents a Camp of Instruction with marching, drills, musket demonstrations, camp cooking, and a camp cobbler.

The 44th Georgia Volunteer Infantry Company “C” is among the most respected Civil War reenactor groups, winning high praise for its educational and living history programs for communities and historical associations, as well as the National Park Service. It is their purpose to honor and keep alive the indominable spirit of the original men of the 44th Georgia–a regiment of mostly farmers, farm workers, and merchants from the Athens, Georgia area–who as soldiers earned a storied battle record during the American Civil War. As living historians, the reenactors of the 44th Georgia Company C strive to tell the public about who these original soldiers were, their hard life in the field, and the valor they showed in combat.

The Boulton Historic Site will be open to the public on Saturday, May 14, and Sunday, May 15, from 10am to 4pm for this very special event. Adult admission is $7.00 with free on-site parking. Children 12 and under, JHS members, active-duty military, and scouts are free. Fun for the whole family!

Be sure visit our museums during our Museum Season Opening Weekend with a new George Dech exhibit in the Pennsylvania Longrifle Museum! The Pennsylvania Longrifle Museum, Gift Shop, Blacksmith Shop, and 1832 J. Joseph Henry House Museum, Summer Kitchen, Carriage Barn, and Boat House will be open for tours on Saturday 10:00 AM to 4:00 PM and Sunday 12:00 PM to 4:00 PM.

Our Annual Plant Sale will be in the side yard of the J.J. Henry House. We will have a wide variety of perennials, annuals & house plants. This is a great fundraiser for the JHS Gardens and you can find some good deals for your indoor or outdoor garden areas.
