Tickets for Germanfest on sale now

On Saturday, Sept. 20, from 4-8 pm, the Rowan Museum will host its annual Germanfest, a celebration of Rowan’s early citizens in eastern Rowan County.
This event, to be held from 4 until 8 p.m. on the grounds of Rowan’s only surviving colonial home, the 1766 Old Stone House, will include local musicians and lifestyle demonstrations of the colonial period. Tours of the house will be offered.
Guests can walk the trail down to the creek where the Braun family had cleared an area for bathing and for their laundry. The family cemetery will be open. Museum staffers and volunteers in period clothing will be demonstrating open fire cooking, basketry, and involve guests in kraut cutting, weaving, late summer chores, candle dipping and woodcarving. A full meal of German fare will be served, along with beer and wine.
Tickets are $35 for adults and $20 for students. Reservations are required and can be made by contacting the museum at 704-633-5946 or email rowanmuseum@fibrant.com. Reservations must be made. The museum does accept credit cards.
Profits will benefit the museum’s educational history programming. The Old Stone House is located one-half mile down Stone House Road, off U.S. 52 in Granite Quarry, 770 Old Stone House Road, Salisbury.
