Hearth Cooking- Maple Sugaring Time

March 9 @ 10:00 am - 2:00 pm

Maple Sugaring Time

March is maple sugaring time! Join the Prescott family in the Phoenix Mill House for a day devoted to treats both sweet and savory featuring maple syrup and maple sugar. Our costumed interpreters will be cooking over the open fire using period recipes and authentic cooking equipment and sharing the history of maple sugaring in New England.

Hearth Cooking Saturdays are open house programs drop by for a few minutes or stay longer enjoying samples of the dishes cooked over the open fire and learning about life in the 1830s.

The Phoenix Mill House is located directly behind the Monadnock Center’s main building at 19 Grove Street. The house was an overseer’s home for the Phoenix Mill, a large cotton mill that stood at the corner of Main and Grove Streets in the 19th century. Samuel and Nancy Prescott lived in the house when Samuel was an overseer in the 1830s.

Admission is free and donations are encouraged.

Thank you!

This program is made possible through the support of the Monadnock Center’s members and sponsorship support from Monadnock Paper Mills. Thank you!!!


The Phoenix Mill House is a historic house built circa 1800. Two high steps are required to enter and exit the building. Restroom facilities are in the center’s main building and are fully accessible.
