S17T1 John Kline Homestead ED-Venture

Spend time learning more about the Civil War history of Elder John Kline and the Brethren church in the Shenandoah Valley. Hear the conversations of John Kline's family and friends during the spring of 1861. Enjoy a country meal while actors come around the tables to recount the issues and tensions facing the Kline family and community at the beginning of the Civil War. The Kline home was built in 1822. The bricks were fired on the property, using the Flemish bond design. The German construction has the chimneys at the north and south ends of the building. The front door retains the period design of cross and open Bible with the original hardware, including four beveled hinges which close the door by gravity. The home is furnished with period pieces and is lit by candlelight, so be prepared to navigate in that light.

Price per person includes:
Homemade candlelight dinner with period food
Visits from characters (reenactors) from the Civil War.

Seating capacity: 40.
