The Joel Lane Museum House, “The Birthplace of Raleigh,” will sponsor its annual Independence Day Open House on Sunday, July 4, 2010 from 1 p.m. to 4 p.m. Colonel Lane was a founding father of North Carolina’s capital city and an officer in the Wake County militia during the American Revolutionary War.
On the grounds, re-enactors will demonstrate various aspects of colonial life such as churning butter and making candles. There will be old-fashioned crafts and games, free lemonade, and live music. The garden will be showcasing its full summer glory, and herbs from the herb garden will be offered for sale.
In addition to outdoor activities, the circa 1770 plantation manor house, the 1790 “Kitchen” building, and the 1840 building housing the gift shop and Visitors Center will be open. Inside, volunteers will explain and demonstrate indoor activities, such as schooling and spinning.
