Renfrew Museum and Park, Farmstead Taste & Tour

Renfrew Museum and Park, Farmstead Taste & Tour

Treat yourself or someone special to a delicious farm-to-table dining experience at Renfrew Museum and Park. Our Farmstead Taste & Tour program offers guests the opportunity to sample seasonal, locally sourced fare inspired by the traditions of our historic Pennsylvania German farmstead.
Your meal will be hosted in Renfrew’s Wagon Shed Room inside our converted Victorian barn. Servers dressed in authentic early 19th century period clothing will wait upon you with old-fashioned hospitality.
Start with a hearty coursed meal of salad, soup, and a selection of fresh-baked breads accompanied by Dutch Valley preserves and creamy, churned butter followed by a trio of sandwiches. After lunch, enjoy a tour of the farmstead outbuildings and 1812 stone Museum House, then return for a scrumptious dessert.
Our menu changes seasonally and reflects the rhythms of life on the farm. Produce is sourced from Greensburg Farms, Hagerstown, MD and prepared by our friends at Keystone Family Restaurant, Waynesboro, PA.

CI Lectures have been a mainstay of the organization drawing crowds on Indian Affairs, the Mason Dixon Line, and much more for years. Many were saddened when the COVID-19 Pandemic canceled planned lectures in 2020.
While in-person Lectures are still problematic to organize, it doesn’t mean the research has stopped.
So, join CI for their first Virtual Lecture Via Zoom, on a subject you won’t want to miss.  To learn more
For information on how to view this virtual lecture, please email mwedd@cimlg.org with the Subject Line “Plaid”. You will be sent instructions on how to join before Wednesday 24th February. After the Lecture, resources from it will be available online.
Pennsylvania-Kentucky Longrifles of Franklin County

Pennsylvania-Kentucky Longrifles of Franklin County

Waynesboro – Refrew Wagon Shed Room – Visitors Center

Tuesday July 28, 2020 at 7:00 PM
Franklin County, PA is well-known for its tradition of fine Pennsylvania-Kentucky style longrifle-making. One craftsman in particular, master gunsmith John H. Johnston (c.1809-1889), spent his entire working life in Waynesboro, manufacturing longrifles for over 50 years. Apprenticing under Henry Carlile, celebrated gunsmith of Shippensburg, PA, Johnston employed elements of what is known as the Chambersburg School of rifle-making; his work is now recognized as being among the finest examples found in the region.  His son went on to found the successor firm Great Western Gunworks in Pittsburgh which was in production through 1923. Join presenter Wayne Martz for an informal conversation about the beauty, quality, and legacy of Franklin County Pennsylvania-Kentucky longrifles, with special focus on the work of J. H. Johnston. Wayne will share examples from his personal collection along with those on exhibit at Renfrew Museum and Park.
