On Saturday evening, Oct. 5, The Friends of Long Pond Ironworks will offer one candlelight walk through the Historic District, giving tourists a glimpse of Colonial life in the Village at night.

The walk will culminate in the barn with entertainment by renowned musical balladeer, Linda Russell.

Ms. Russell performs on guitar, mountain and hammered dulcimers, penny whistle, and limber jack while her rich singing voice illuminates our American heritage through patriotic anthems, broadsides, hymns, and dance tunes.

Ms. Russell punctuates her musical performances with anecdotes and facts from primary source material.
