Grab your fork-get some pie!

Got a hankering for homemade pie? Plan on driving to Rokeby Museum in Ferrisburgh for the Annual Pie and Ice Cream Social on Sunday, Aug. 15 from 1 to 4 p.m.

Rokeby Museum volunteers have been perfecting the art of pie making for more than 25 years.

Peach, apple, berry pies of every kind, even recipes from the Robinson family collection, including "Maple Butternut Chiffon." How about "a la mode" with Wilcox Dairy ice cream? It's a selection like you've never seen before! And you can justify helping yourself to a second slice because all proceeds support the Museum's mission. Enjoy the soothing sounds of the Vergennes City Band as you relax in the shade with summer's sweetest treat.

Guided tours of the house will be available every half-hour throughout the afternoon; tour admission is $6 adults, $4 for seniors, and $2 for children.

Rokeby Museum is a 90-acre historic site and National Historic Landmark designated for its exceptional Underground Railroad history. Rokeby was home to four generations of the Robinson family, from 1793 to 1961. The Museum is located on Route 7 in Ferrisburgh.
