Step back in time and learn hands-on how 19th century craftsmen applied their trades!  Harpers Ferry Park Association partners with park rangers and contractors skilled in historic trades to offer these unique experiences for the public. Spin sugar into beautifully sculpted candy, echo 19th century blacksmiths by clanging hammer to hot iron, or bake a pie the 1860 way in a wood or coal stove.

Puzzle Palooza Game Night


Description: Welcome to the game of competitive jigsaw puzzles! 

Teams of four race to complete a 500-piece jigsaw puzzle. Worried another crew is moving too fast? Slow them down with a hilarious challenge: have them try assembling pieces with oven mitts or another obstacle! 

Pre-registration is strongly encouraged, to ensure we have sufficient puzzles on hand. Don’t have a team of four? Register by yourself and we’ll match you with other players. 

Cost: $80 for team of four; $25 per person.
