More than 800 people came out for the first Stone House Heritage Day at Marsh Creek State Park, with visitors of all ages enjoying the opportunity to visit and learn about both the house and the park.

“I’ve been driving past the house for years and always wanted to see it up close,” said Lee Branson of Antioch. “I hope we can get inside it next year.”

Although we’re not sure if the stabilization project now underway will make it possible to safely allow access to the inside, we’re hoping it will. In the meantime, planning has already begun for next year’s Heritage Day, which will be bigger and better than this year. There will be more informational presentations, kids activities (the archaeological digs in our portable midden box was especially popular) and food, and we hope an even bigger crowd.\

Thanks to everyone who turned out, and we’ll see you next year!

Here are a few photos from the event:
