Cannonball House event

The Cannonball House sent out a press release for an event that was omitted from the official Cherry Blossom Festival events calendar. Here it is:

Candlelight Tours at the Cannonball House

A new evening event is planned for this year’s Cherry Blossom Festival. Cherry Blossom Candlelight Tours of the Cannonball House will be held Friday, April 4, from 6:00-10:00 p.m.
Living historians will be on hand to bring this historic home and its accompanying kitchen house to life during a rare evening opening. Some, portraying early Cannonball House residents, will greet guests in the front hall. Others will be busy at work in the old brick kitchen house. Not only will they interact with guests, they may also offer samples of food they are cooking on the cook stove, or perhaps a spontaneous musical interlude.
Civil War soldier reinactor-historians, a perennial favorite among Festival goers, will also be present. They will set up an evening camp in the back garden and explain to visitors about the evening activities of a soldier.
The Cannonball House is located at 856 Mulberry Street. It received its name because it was struck by a cannonball during the Civil War. The main house and its accompanying brick kitchen house/servants’ quarters are open for public tours daily during the Cherry Blossom Festival.
For more information, please call (478) 745-5982.
