Tryon Palace to Open Hay House Living History Experience

Experience 1835 life every Saturday beginning Oct. 10

Tryon Palace will add another living history experience for regular visitors with the opening of the historic Robert Hay House every Saturday from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m., beginning Oct. 10. 

Located near the corner of Eden and Pollock streets, the Hay House invites visitors to experience the daily life of a middle-class family in 1835. Visitors are invited to take a seat in the parlor and spend time visiting with the Hays and their friends as they catch up on the town gossip, help with daily chores—such as making a feather bed—or help Mr. Hay as an apprentice in the carriage-making trade. 

The Hay House is open 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. every Saturday through Nov. 7, and then 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. on Saturdays through Dec. 19. The Hay House will reopen on Saturdays beginning March 5, 2016. 

Admission to the Hay House is included with the purchase of a One Day Pass.
