MATTHEWIS PERSEN HOUSE MUSEUM
Winter in colonial New York was notoriously harsh and unforgiving. Join the 1st Ulster Militia as they recreate an 18th century colonial encampment at the Persen House, complete with demonstrations of fire-starting, knitting, sewing, open fire cooking, and more!
The original 1st Regiment, Ulster County Militia was composed of citizen soldiers from the area now within the boundaries of Kingston, Saugerties and Woodstock. Members promote the education of the public as to military and social life in the colonial and Revolutionary War eras through demonstrations of everyday crafts and skills and the typical life of the militiaman.
