Mad about Mushrooms
Due to the storm on the afternoon of Wednesday, June 24, we currently are having phone line troubles at our offices at the William Harris Homestead Museum & Education Center. If you need assistance or would like to contact us, please do so by either emailing us at email@example.com
Thank you and hope everyone is safe!
Thank you for your continued support of the William Harris Homestead.
Unfortunately, due to the global health crisis surrounding COVID-19, we remain closed for Saturday public tours. We are working hard to ensure that our historic site is a safe place for our visitors and our staff alike, and are making plans to open to the public again in July.
We apologize for any inconvenience this may cause. Any advance tickets purchased will be honored through the end of the year.
We look forward to seeing you soon
EVENT UPDATES AND MUSEUM HOURS
Out of concern for the safety, health, and well-being of everyone, the William Harris Homestead Museum & Education Center has made the difficult decision to cancel or postpone upcoming spring events and adjust our museum hours. Please see below for details.
- Blacksmith Day, scheduled for March 21, has been postponed. We will keep you posted when a new date has been set.
- Public tours and museum hours on the first and third Saturdays at the William Harris Homestead have been cancelled until further notice.
- Our field trip program, “A Day in the 19th Century,” has been postponed through March 31. We have been in direct contact with the schools scheduled through March 31, and we will revaluate the situation at this date.
The William Harris Homestead Museum & Education Center staff will still be able to respond to calls and emails in a timely manner.
Thank you for your understanding and continued support during these unprecedented times. The William Harris Homestead is a non-profit organization focused on serving as a cultural and educational center for the advancement of heritage, environmental, and agricultural scholarship. The support of our visitors, schools, Friends of the Homestead, and community is highly valued and is of the utmost importance. Revenue from our field trip program and special events play a large part in daily operations, and we hope for your continued support for the William Harris Homestead Museum & Education Center during this time.

What is Giving Tuesday?
Celebrated on the Tuesday following U.S. Thanksgiving, and fueled by the power of social media and collaboration, GivingTuesday inspires millions of people across the globe to show up and give back to causes and issues that matter to them. The goal is to create a massive wave of generosity that lasts well beyond that day, and touches every person on the planet. GivingTuesday takes place on December 3, 2019 this year.
GivingTuesday harnesses the generosity of millions of people around the world to support the causes they believe in and the communities in which they live. We believe the movement will become the first global day of giving and a year-round platform for strengthening civil society.
