Declaration of Independence 

Celebrate Independence Day in Talley Cavey

Sunday, July 3, 1-4 pm

Celebrate the birthday of our young Nation with the Villagers of Talley Cavey!

As was customary, a villager will read the Declaration of Independence at the close of the afternoon as we salute the birth of our young nation.

Enjoy a family friendly concert of historic patriotic music by the members of the Pittsburgh Historical Music Society, followed by the reading of the Declaration of Independence and a fire-arms salute to our nation.

The Depreciation Lands were established as a way to compensate the soldiers of Pennsylvania for their service in the War for Independence. It is only fitting that we should gather, in this year of 1792, to salute their dedication to our new nation.

Bring your picnic and share this afternoon of celebration with us!

As always, there will be the savory scent of woodsmoke from the cooking in the Armstong's log house, you can watch the blacksmith work his magic with iron, and attend class in the one-room school. You can even engage in the quiet task of carding wool for spinning.

Demonstrations and hands-on opportunities always abound for visitors of all ages
