A Special Mother’s Day Tribute at Ellwood Manor

Please join us as on Saturday, May 11 when we read aloud from letters written by Civil War soldiers to their mothers, wives, and grandmothers as a special Mother’s Day tribute. Readings will take place at 11:00 A.M. and 2:00 P.M.  The programs will last about 30 minutes.  Bring your favorite lawn chair so you can listen in comfort as volunteers read these special letters!


Visitors can enjoy live Civil War era music played by Evergreen Shade, who will perform between programs.
