The Southampton Historical Society will host a Harvest Day Fair tomorrow, Saturday, September 26 from 11 a.m. to 4 p.m. at the Rogers Mansion on Meeting House Lane. 

This free family event celebrates life in Southampton during the 19th century and will include costumed and craft people demonstrating beekeeping, candlemaking, decoy carving, blacksmithing and other crafts.

“[The event] harkens back to a simpler, hands on era where both adults and children alike pitched in to make an income for the family and to make a sustainable home life,” the society said in a press release.
