Living History Talk: The History of the New England Maple Sugar Harvest

Learn about maple sugar making in New England from the Native Americans to the end of the 19th century. From slash to spile to suction, the story of the maple sap harvest is one of romance, folklore, and science. The "gold of the forest" in the form of maple syrup or maple candy is still a treat for us today and a valued part of New England's economy. Free online program with registration required. The presentation is approximately 45 minutes followed by a 15-minute question and answer period all totaling a one-hour program in duration.

The admission is free, but we welcome donations to support the Museum’s cultural and educational virtual programming during the COVID-19 crisis.
