The Jonathan Fisher House of Blue Hill will host a celebration of autumn at the House on Sunday, October 13 from noon to 2:00 PM. Pear cider will be pressed on-site from the blue-ribbon winning pears planted by Jonathan Fisher as early as 1805. Attendees are encouraged to bring a jug or jar to take home some “peary” of their own.
House tours will be available during the event, as well as samples of cheeses to celebrate the recent identification of one of the objects in Fisher’s barn as a cheese press, and, in honor of Indigenous Peoples’ Day, a new display about Fisher’s relationship to the Penobscot language and people.
This event is open to the public and free of charge, though donations are always welcome. The Jonathan Fisher House is a historic house museum in Blue Hill. Fisher’s famed collection of folk art, surveying instruments, woodworking tools, furniture, and farming implements that he designed and personally made are housed at the Homestead located at 44 Mines Road (U.S. 15 S).
