History Space

Supporting the field of public history through education and demonstration

Immersive Programs

History Space seeks to support the field of public history through education and demonstration. This work produces high-quality living history programs and events, including reenactments, traditional trade and craft demonstrations, and workshops. Seminars assist practitioners of public history and inform the public about topics and issues in the field.

Want to learn more about colonial wedding traditions? Check this space soon for more info!
