The 8th Pennsylvania Regiment of the Continental Line will pitch their tents at the log house site to provide hands-on experience with living history from 10:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. The log house will be open to showcase restoration efforts by the Elizabeth Township Historical Society that include handicapped-accessible porch, restored turkey-breast fireplace and several recent antique donations.
