FRAMINGHAM – Eastleigh Farm turns into a living history museum with its popular U.S. Civil War Reenactment Weekend happening this Saturday and Sunday. 

The 1st Massachusetts Cavalry will  reenact the Battle of Bull Run on the grounds of the farm. Explore the camps, learn about the Civil War from the reenactors and watch the battle. It is a wonderful history lesson for us all. 

The camps will be open to the public on Saturday from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. and on Sunday from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m.

The farm and ice cream bus will be open from 9 a.m. to 7 p.m. on both days.

Our hayride wagon will transport individuals and families back and forth from the battle site. 

After exploring the camps, shop in our market or at Avenue C, participate in the kids’ scavenger hunt, eat a hot dog from Trolley Dogs (Saturday only!) or picnic on our grounds, and end the day with a refreshing ice cream! 

Admission on Saturday is $20 per car, or $10 if only a single person is in the car, and includes parking, transportation around the site on the hayride wagon and a ticket for a half price admission on Sunday. 

Sunday’s admission is $15 per car, or $10 for single person in car, and $7 for those who have a Saturday ticket. This ticket includes transportation around the site and parking. 

Credit and debit cards are accepted at the farm gate for admission.
