Seek Out the History Most Visitors Miss at Sully Historic Site

sully historic siteThere’s more to Sully Historic Site than just the historic house.

Dig deeper into local history with the program, “Hidden in Your Backyard: The History of Cain’s Branch.” Come to Sully to hike the trails and learn about the history of abandoned sites hidden from most visitors’ views. Follow trails of forested areas and Cain’s Branch waterway to learn about the Lees and other families who made Sully their home. Expect to do some walking over uneven terrain.

This program is suitable for all ages and is being offered on two Thursdays in October – Oct. 8 and Oct. 22, 2020. The outdoor guided event runs from 11 a.m. to noon, and the cost is $10 per person.
