Attending to the Needs of Others: Domestic Service in the Age of Jane Austen

Saturday, July 30, 2022

Registration required by July 22

Immerse yourself in the Regency era as you compare the lives of Riversdale's labor force, both enslaved and free, to that of domestic servants depicted in Jane Austen's novels. Prepare lunch in the open hearth kitchen, use period methods for washing dishes and doing laundry, and prepare a series of historically-inspired cleaning products to take home while learning about the individuals who would have completed these tasks at Riversdale.
