Hearth Cooking: Harvest Time in the Phoenix Mill House

Harvest Time Hearth Cooking

It is harvest time and we will be cooking up some of autumn’s bounty in the Phoenix Mill House. At this open-house program, enjoy samples of dishes cooked over the open hearth and learn about life in the 1830s. Dishes are prepared from period recipes using the kitchen equipment of the time. Some of the ingredients will be harvested from the mill house garden.

Our costumed interpreters will tell you about the Samuel and Nancy Prescott family who lived in the Phoenix Mill House in theHarvest Time Hearth Cooking: Mill House Garden 1830s when Samuel was an overseer at the Phoenix Mill.

The Monadnock Center’s Phoenix Mill House is located behind the center’s main building at 19 Grove Street in downtown Peterborough.
