This week:

The past few Saturday evenings, we have been overwhelmed by wedding photography groups from about 3 pm to 7 pm. The hard-top parking lot is our only available parking. As a curtesy, we open overflow parking in the paddock across from the parking lot, on the Bankbarn field on Jericho Road, and in the field on right on the far side of the river on Jerusalem Road. These will be only open if the ground is hard and dry. Please be aware that the park closes at dusk and cars in the Village may be ticketed after 8 pm.

Monday and Friday:

1PM-4PM Visitor’s Center/Mill Museum is open.

Saturday:

The Meadow and Picnic Area are Reserved June 16th and closed to Park Visitors. Parking is available in the Bank Barn Field on Jericho Road.
