Stroll along the beautiful gardens of the Jeremiah Lee Mansion, meeting skilled artisans and historic reenactors as they demonstrate crafts from a time gone by. Learn how shoes were made (a major Marblehead industry!) from a Master Shoemaker, or try your hand at copperplate printing with an accomplished Printmaker. Chat with members of Glover’s Marblehead Regiment or see 18thcentury food being prepared by a Culinary Historian.

From Ipswich Lacemaking and Coopering to Tinsmithing and Ropemaking, there are so many things to see and learn! Join us for a day of fun and festivities as we celebrate the trades of the past and the individuals who keep those skills alive.
