THOMASTON — The General Henry Knox Museum will close its official season with three final days of festivities 10 a.m.-3:30 p.m. Saturday through Monday, Oct. 8-10, at Montpelier.

Family rates are capped at $18, and groups of 10 or more unrelated parties pay $5 each.

A workshop will be offered 12:30-2:30 p.m. Saturday, Oct. 8, to teach children how to make pomanders — fragrant balls made from fruits and spices that can be tucked away in drawers or hung in closets or other rooms as old-fashioned sachets and room fresheners.

One of Paul Revere’s descendants, Suzy Shaub, will be on hand 1-3:30 p.m. Monday, Oct. 10, to answer questions about Montpelier’s bell crafted by Paul Revere that once hung in the old North Church.

The DAR will provide free refreshments. Colonial-recipe punch, pies, and pumpkin bread will be available to the public at an information table.
