Charter Day, which celebrates the signing of the Pennsylvania Charter by William Penn, will be celebrated at the Daniel Boone Homestead on Sunday, March 10, from noon to 4 p.m.
Admission is free for this event and will include first floor house tours of the Boone House, a working blacksmith, and textile demonstrations in the Visitor Center throughout the afternoon.
In addition, Robin Moore, children’s author and storyteller from Doylestown will share stories about the frontier in the Wayside Lodge. These story sessions will occur at 1 p.m., 2 p.m. and 3 p.m. and are part of our Fireside Tales series. A $2 per person donation is suggested for this program.
