Get cozy in the atmospheric surroundings of Wyckoff Farmhouse with a free day of exploring history and handcrafts.

This month, the Farmhouse Family Day, a monthly free open house at the 17th century farmhouse, focuses on knitting-themed activities. The day is open to visitors of all ages to learn about fibers, explore the historic house, participate in a scavenger hunt and try their hand at colonial games. There’ll be a finger-knitting activity — no needles required. Experienced knitters are also encouraged to bring their own projects to join in on a winter’s afternoon of crafting.
