Celebrate Presidents Day all weekend long! Join us for part or all of the three-day weekend to meet our nation’s most famous presidents and first ladies.

Don’t miss a chance to meet Dolley Madison! On Sunday, February 18, sit down with the “Presidentress” herself, portrayed by Living Historian Judith Kalaora of History at Play. Learn what actions she took to improve the function of the White House, discover how she protected important objects when Washington, D.C., was attacked during the War of 1812, and learn how to make your very own fan for your next 18th-century party!

Looking for more presidential Living History? Say to hello to President George and First Lady Martha Washington any day this weekend! Or return on Monday, February 19, to welcome our 16th president, Abraham Lincoln!
