Coming up!

Ardenwood, Fremont, California.

The Rail Fair will be held on Labor Day weekend.  The park will be especially full of 4 year old boys!  But there will be lots of girls too!  The children love all the model trains set up in the farmyard.

Abraham Lincoln's casket (replica) will be on display at the Patterson House  September 4-14.
     This replica was made in 2015 for the anniversary of Lincoln's death to celebrate his life and re-enact the funeral train trip that brought his body to be laid to rest in Springfield, Ill.   The train stopped at several cities so the people could express their goodbys.   Since the 2015 anniversary the replica has been traveling throughout the country as a memorial to Lincoln.  The Chapel of the Roses has offered it to be displayed at the Patterson House before it moves on to its next destination. And now that I have my Mourning Dress finished with all its embellishments I am ready for the proper viewing of the casket.

Ardenwood will hold the next Murder Mystery Dinner on September 12.  More information will be posted on the Patterson House facebook page soon.

There will be the Foundation Rummage Sale on September 19 in the front parking lot at Ardenwood.  7-Noon.
