Family outing in Orwell to include building fairy houses

ORWELL — It’s August and time for a family outing. On Saturday, Aug. 11, at the Mount Independence State Historic Site in Orwell, enjoy an afternoon of “Building Fairy and Other Imaginary Houses.” The activity runs from 1 to 4 p.m. and is included in regular site admission — $5 for adults and free for children under 15.
Children accompanied by parents or a responsible adult are invited to drop in throughout the afternoon at our scenic picnic area. Be inspired by nature, the history of Mount Independence, or one’s own flights of imagination to use natural materials to build small “fairy houses,” a Revolutionary War star fort, or anything else at small scale. Site interpreters will be on hand to guide the activity.
Participants should check in at the museum and get directions. While there take advantage of the site and bring a picnic, visit the museum, and go for a walk on the beautiful trail system.
Mount Independence is at 497 Mount Independence Road, six miles west of the intersections of VT Routes 22A and 73 near Orwell village.
