The event will be held from 1 p.m. to 4 p.m. at the Welles Shipman Ward House in South Glastonbury. Glastonbury native Mark Packard will take visitors through the maple sugar making process. Visitors will check the sugar bush – a group of maple trees - on the hill behind the house where the trees are tapped. The sap will be boiled in a large 2-foot-by-4-foot pan, on concrete blocks with a fire underneath it.
Inside the historic home, pancakes will be cooked on the open hearth using an 18th-century method with Connecticut-made sap poured on them. Admission is $3 per person and free to HSG members. The rain/snow date is March 17.
