 “A Day on the Trail” at Rice-Tremonti Home

includes an old-fashioned ice cream social

 

The Friends of the Rice-Tremonti Home will hold “A Day on the Trail” open house on Saturday, Sept. 20, 2-6 p.m.  Visitors can enjoy an afternoon of old-fashioned fun on the lawn of the 1844 farmhouse and landmark on the Santa Fe Trail including an ice-cream social, which will begin at 4 p.m. Genuine homemade ice cream will be scooped up during the afternoon, along with beverages and other goodies.

“We want our neighbors and friends to come out for a sociable time with each other and to enjoy this historic treasure that has been preserved in our community,” said Barb Schlapia, president of the Friends of Rice-Tremonti.

In addition to desserts and snacks, a group of historic re-enactors will attend and show how life on the 19th century frontier was really lived. Live music is planned along with activities for kids.  Some seating is available but attendees are encouraged to bring lawn chairs.

“We want to show the public how our group has advanced in preserving this historic home and to challenge them to help us with our ongoing projects,” Schlapia said.

Currently, the Friends are in the process of having all the wood-frame sash windows restored or rebuilt as necessary.  The first phase of the three-phase project is tentatively scheduled to be completed by the end of September.  And as with any 170-year-old wooden house, there are plenty of projects ahead including replacing rotted wood on the exterior.

Tours of the historic home will be conducted at times throughout the day.

There is no charge for admittance to the property, however, donations are greatly appreciated. The Friends of the Rice-Tremonti Home is a not-for-profit, 501 (c) 3 organization dedicated to the preservation of the house. All money raised goes toward that process.
