  • 160 S Saint Marys Street Raleigh, NC, 27605 United States (map)

The Joel Lane Museum House presents our 26th Annual Historic Independence Day Open House—An Old-Fashioned Fourth of July Celebration!

The house will be open, staffed by costumed docents who will discuss the rooms and life in the 18th century. On the grounds, living historians will demonstrate various aspects of colonial life, and visitors will be able to participate in hands-on activities such as writing with a quill pen, trying colonial-era toys, and making rag dolls. Enjoy old-fashioned crafts and games for the children, and free lemonade for all. The garden will display its full summer glory, and herbs and plants from the gardens will be for sale.

The Visitors Center and Museum Store will be open as well.
