Lime Rick Burn—a Special Program at Ferry Farm
Saturday, September 24: 10:00 a.m. – 5:00 p.m.
A fiery sight and a rare experience! Watch Foundation staff and artisans Bill Neff and Kenneth Tappan burn a lime rick – a large crib of wood and oyster shells lit on fire – to produce lime for brick work as part of constructing the Washington house.
Guests are invited to interact with educators at both the lime rick and the Washington house building site to discuss the Washingtons’ life at Ferry Farm as well as colonial trades, architecture, and elements of the project, including timber framing.
Weather permitting—updates are posted on facebook.com/FerryFarmAndKenmore; regular admission required. Learn more at http://ferryfarm.org/events.html.
