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!

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.
