Georgetown Days

This weekend Georgetown is celebrating Georgetown Days, the kind of little local celebration small towns often have. The goings-on are modest enough– the local historical society museum is open, a crafts fair at the library, a chili contest and beer tasting at the hardware store– but it’s nice to be living in a town that has that sense of history and community after all those years in New York. Unfortunately, it doesn’t seem to have been organized terribly well. We walked out today hoping to visit the museum and crafts fair, only to find out that the museum wasn’t open yet and the crafts fair is tomorrow. But it was a gorgeous sunny fall day and we enjoyed strolling around and stopping at the farmer’s market before heading back to the museum. The museum is in the oldest house in town, dating originally from the 1600s, and has a charmingly eclectic assortment of household artifacts from the area spanning the 1700s to early 1900s.
