From the newsletter of the Ledyard Historical Society: This year Independence Day falls on a Wednesday. Our family-oriented “Old Fashioned Fourth” is an ideal way to celebrate if you are not leaving town to visit family or friends. Come to the Nathan Lester House on July 4th, at any time from 1:00 through 4:30 PM.
Enjoy lawn games, take a hike and explore the gardens, tour the house and barns. Bring a picnic and spend the afternoon. In case of inclement weather there will be indoor activities. Come and bring the family. Hosting visitors at your house? Bring them along, too!
The Nathan Lester House and Farm Tool Museum is located at the intersection of Long Cove and Vinegar Hill Roads in Gales Ferry.
