Night in Washington’s Day

Learn about the surprisingly active nights of 18th century early America by attending our annual Night in Washington’s Day program! During this hour-long program, guests will explore the night sky’s history through constellation stories well-known to early Americans, learn about (and see!) historic lighting technology inside Kenmore’s candlelit dining room, and witness actors portray two enslaved women using nighttime to plan an escape in a dramatic theater scene. This special program is not a full tour of Historic Kenmore, but rather a glimpse into part of the past.
