Saturday, August 19, 2017: 1840 Whig Election Rally

10 a.m. to 5 p.m.

In 1840, war hero William Henry Harrison—of Cincinnati’s own North Bend—ran for president. Senator Thomas Morris, a staunch opponent of slavery who lived in Heritage Village’s Elk Lick House in the early 1840’s, supported Harrison after his own party rejected his anti-slavery views. Come see both men speak at this election rally!

For the second year in a row, Heritage Village will host an 1840’s political rally on Saturday, August 19. Come and take part—and find out what political issues held the attention of this country before the Civil War. Print your own ballot in our print shop and cast your vote, taste some not-so-hard cider by our log house, hear William Henry Harrison address the crowd, and see a duel of honor played out.

Admission fee: $10 for adults, $6 for ages 5-11, free for 4 & under and members

Here's a working schedule for the 1840 Whig Rally:
 
 
 
 
 

Sunday, August 27, 2017: Heritage Village Alive

1 p.m. to 5 p.m.

Along with our regular guided tours at 1:30 and 3:30 on this day, we will have some extra buildings open. Come out and meet a visiting historic woodworker (joiner), a leatherworker, visit our print shop, and see what else we have open!

Admission fee: Tickets that include a 90-minute guided tour of our 19th century buildings are $5 for ages 12 & up, $3 for ages 5-11, and free for age 4 & under and members. (Your tour guide will have a key, and will be able to include buildings that are not otherwise open for the day.)

If you want to skip the tour and just stroll through the village (and meet our special guests), self-guided tour tickets are $3 for ages 12 & up, $1 for ages 5-11, and free for ages 4 & under and members. Self-guided tours do not include the inside of the buildings--unless we have a guest inside for the day keeping it open.
