Aldie Mill Historic Park will offer a living history program, 1820s America: The Era of Good Feelings Sept. 7-8.
Members of the Historical Interpretation Branch of the W.S. Hancock Society will portray a minister, cabinet maker, tavern keeper, tobacconist and other residents and businessmen of the village of Aldie.
The miller also will be on hand to operate the mill on both days, and a good friend of mill owner Charles Fenton Mercer will share stories of his friend and colleague. Visitors will learn how the village of Aldie became a center for commerce in this time period, meet the people of the past and discover how they lived and worked in and around the village.
The program will be presented from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. Sept. 7 and 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. Sept. 8, and includes demonstrations and historical impressions throughout the days. An 11 a.m. Sunday church service will be held at nearby Mt. Zion Church Historic Park. Admission is $5 per adult and is valid for both days.
Children under 17 are admitted free of charge.
