Step back in time and experience the world of colonial games and toys at the Persen House. Try your hand at many entertaining and historic games, including the Game of Graces, Jacob’s Ladder, Hopscotch, and Whirligigs, among others.


Explore the colonial era through our ‘Colonial Kids’ portraits and see what you might have looked like in colonial dress. Bring your family to experience a fun-filled day and discover how games and toys were different – or perhaps similar – in the 18th century compared to today’s games.
