The Centennial of the young nation’s first great hero inspired great celebration among early 19th century Americans. They gathered to offer toasts to George Washington and other important figures of the day. They also held balls, complete with cake and dancing.
On Sunday, the Dey Mansion will celebrate Washington’s Birthday weekend in the exact same spirit! Visitors can take part in a salute to George Washington, eat cake, and learn more about the country’s first president. Special appearances will be made by New Jersey’s local militia. The day will also be filled with 18th century dancing, music, demonstrations, and crafters.
