ENGAGEMENT ANNIVERSARY History Hike at Chase Farm set for Sunday LINCOLN – A History Hike through Chase Farm's outdoor museum will be held on Sunday, Oct. 18, at 12:30 p.m. Guided tours of the Hearthside House will be held on Sunday, Oct. 25, from 1 to 3 p.m. Both tours are hosted by the Friends of Hearthside. For safety, tours are limited to small groups and are avail- able by advance registration only. The sites help to tell the stories of life in the community's early years. The Hannaway Blacksmith Shop (c.1880), the Pullen's Corner Schoolhouse (c.1850) and Chase Farm itself (c.1867) are anchored at each end by the Hearthside House (c.1810) and the Moffett Mill (c.1812) at the far end, comprising what is known as the Great Road Heritage Campus at Chase Farm Park. At Chase Farm Park, the 90-minute guided walking tour of the Heritage Campus takes place from 12:30 to 2 p.m. Leading the tour will be Kathy Chase Hartley, founder of the Friends of Hearthside and granddaughter of Benjamin Chase, owner of Lincoln's last operating dairy farm. The tour covers the history of Great Road, one of the oldest roadways in the country, to the development of the town dur- ing the 19th century, which was part of Smithfield until 1871. The majority of the tour takes place outdoors, but there will be stops at the blacksmith shop and one-room schoolhouse. The Hannaway Blacksmith Shop is the last remaining smithy in town and still operates today, preserving the traditional skill of hand forging by offering classes. The tour includes the history of blacksmith shops in town as well as a demonstration at the forge. While the Moffett Mill will not be accessible on the tour due to COVID-19 restrictions, an interpreter will be on hand to detail its history and show visuals to explain how it operated its water-driven machinery at this last relic of the early Industrial Revolution. The Pullen's Corner Schoolhouse is a one-room school that served this community until it closed in 1922. To save the building, it was moved to Chase Farm Park from its origi- nal location on Angell Road. Here, another volunteer interpreter pro- vides a close-up look at what it was like to be a student, and a teacher, some 150 years ago. Since every schoolhouse (and home) had an out- house, one of the tour's features will be a stop by the replica that is next to the schoolhouse. Hearthside's guided tours on Sunday, Oct. 25, from 1 to 3 p.m., will showcases the 200-year history of the stone mansion. Timed admissions are in allot- ments every 20 minutes to allow for ample social distancing throughout the museum with four to five guests per slot. Advance registration and ticket purchase only.
