Tours will focus on the year 1820, a time of chaos and disarray not unlike 2020. Not only is this year the 200th anniversary of the construction of the Davenport House, it is also the anniversary of a colossal municipal fire, a horrific yellow fever epidemic, and an economic downturn – the nation’s first. While there was turmoil, the household survived.
Fire and Fever Fridays: In addition to docent-led tours, on Fridays during the month living history interpreters will expound on daily life 1820s-style.
