On Saturday, July 22, the Varnum Continentals Historic Militia held a cannon drill at the Varnum House Museum. We had a great time and enjoyed getting visits from folks in the local community. The historic militia members demonstrated the equipment and procedures used to load a cannon and reviewed safety procedures. After the drill, the cannon was painted.
We were happy to see folks visiting the House’s period herb garden and enjoying the museum grounds. We look forward to seeing you again in the future at the Varnum House Museum!
