Visitors at this fun-filled free family event are welcomed throughout the cabin by historians and actors in costume as well as treated to an old-fashioned ice cream social, live music with young fiddlers, traditional blacksmith demos, hat-making with a hat and bonnet parade/contest, Civil War camp with the 102nd USCT Black History group, African American quilters, locally-made refreshments, and much more.

 It has become an annual summer event that reconnects people of all ages to early Detroit memories and history, and aspirations for Detroit’s continued revival.

Some fun you can expect include visits from the Detroit Mounted Police, free ice cream to the first 500, the Wheelmen on penny farthings, Barbara M. Allen, sixth-generation granddaughter of Sojourner Truth, will do readings from her children’s book on Sojourner Truth and talk about her history, arts and crafts, spinning & weaving demos and more!
