Join us at the Covenhoven House on Saturday, March 23 for our Open Hearth- Open House. Take a tour of the historic house, enjoy 18th-century recipes cooked on the hearth, and period children’s games outside. This event is free and open to the public.
Visitors will be transported back in time as costumed interpreters demonstrate how food was prepared in an eighteenth-century open-hearth kitchen at the Covenhoven House in Freehold. Featuring a rotating theme and menu, this program offers visitors the opportunity to learn about colonial foods cooked over the open hearth, then sample the results.Afterward, enjoy a tour of the 1750’s home, illustrating what life was like for the Covenhoven family as they moved away from their Dutch traditions and embraced a more English lifestyle.
