For the first time, Chase Farm Park will be hosting Revolutionary War re-enactors. For kids with active imaginations, this brings the history of our country to life, in the way no movie can! More than 200 or so re-enactors will be portraying camp life, performing drills, and acting out different scenarios. For children, this is a chance to see, feel, hear, and experience the past and engage with new ideas and situations; understand history by being part of it! While Hearthside wasn’t even around during the Revolutionary War, the great-great-grandfather of Arnold Talbot (owner of Hearthside 1904-1926) was Silas Talbot of Providence, a courageous hero who distinguished himself as both an army colonel and as a highly successful naval captain during the American Revolution. Silas' portrait hangs over the dining room fireplace at Hearthside as the patriarch of the Talbot family.
