Huntington celebrates annual Apple Festival

The Huntington Historical Society continued a long-standing tradition on Sunday with its annual Apple Festival.

About 1,500 people attended the festival at the Dr. Daniel W. Kissam House Museum -- structure that was originally built in 1795 -- and took part in scarecrow making, square dancing and other family activities, said Maria De Leo, office coordinator for the historical society.

Festival workers dressed in colonial garb and showed visitors how to bake bread in the Kissam house’s original outdoor oven - called a bee hive oven - churn butter and work a loom.

De Leo said the historic house was also open for tours during the event.

Check out the Village Tattler for photos from the event.
