The event, the first of its kind in the area, will feature tours of the dependencies on the grounds of 5 different historic homes/buildings in Petersburg. Demonstrations by local artisans, performances by period musicians, displays of historic artifacts, and re-enactors will be spread throughout the tour. Fall décor and other items will be available for sale. For those who are not familiar with the term dependency, it refers to carriage houses, summer kitchens, smoke houses, slave quarters and, yes, privies. Many of these buildings still exist but have been lovingly restored and re-purposed for modern life. This tour will give participants the opportunity to learn the history of each dependency and see each transformation.
