A Cockayne Wedding at the Cockayne Farmstead

On May 17, 1870, Lida Cockayne, daughter of Bennett Cockayne, married Henry C. Taylor in the Cockayne Farmhouse. Join us as we recreate that historic event!
Tour the farmhouse, meet the family members, and find out all that went into planning a Victorian wedding! This will be a living history event you will not want to miss. From period attire to elaborate decorations, the entire farmhouse will be transformed. Come step back in time for this joyous event!
Tours will occur every fifteen minutes throughout the afternoon. Timed tickets should be purchased in advance by phone or on our website to keep tour sizes limited. The ceremony will be re-enacted at 2:30 and 4:00 pm.
Wedding cake and punch will also be served in the Cockayne Visitor Center.
