An Apple Cider Pressing Demonstration September 10, 2017
On Sunday, September 10, from 1:00 to 4:00 p.m., the Abigail Adams Birthplace will be open for tours and an apple cider pressing demonstration. An important seasonal activity in colonial times, cider pressing produced one of the most common beverages drunk by people of all ages through the early 19th century.
Visits are by guided tour only between 1:00 and 4:00 p.m., with tours given on the hour and half hour. The last tour begins at 3:30 p.m. Admission is $5 for adults and $1 for children under 12.
Visitors are encouraged to bring their own apples for pressing.
The Abigail Adams Birthplace, where Abigail Smith Adams was born in 1744 and where she married John Adams in 1764, is located at 180 Norton Street, North Weymouth, Mass.
