Event description

Description

Originally known as Decoration Day, Memorial Day originated in the years following the Civil War to honor those who fell in battle. The Civil War, claimed more lives than any conflict in U.S. history and required the establishment of the country’s first national cemeteries. By the late 1860s, Americans in various towns and cities had begun holding springtime tributes to these countless fallen soldiers, decorating their graves with flowers and reciting prayers.

Join the villagers of the Howell Works as they open their homes and work places to visitors on this Memorial Day 2019.

There is no admission fee to the village. Parking is $5 per car (supports the Historic Village at Allaire).
