The spirits have seized Ridgetown
Historic characters from Ridgetown’s past will be alive once again on July 21 at the 13th annual Spirit Ride. Join the Ridge House Museum and its many dedicated volunteers for a wagon ride around scenic Ridgetown. You will be entertained with lively historic tales. You may just encounter one of the first Ridgetown area settlers, Ebenezer Colby, or the sly but silly Ben Hagaman, or even an actor or two, members of what will become the entertainment staple of Ridgetown, the Ridge Players. Wagons will leave the Ridge House Museum every twenty minutes beginning at 7 p.m.
Come out early to explore the treasures of the Ridge House Museum while you wait. The current exhibition will be “Community Roots”, featuring the agricultural history of Ridgetown as told through the family histories and treasures of participating century farm families. If you miss the exhibition on Spirit Ride night, the exhibit will be up until the end of the season, September 22, 2012.
