The French are coming!! In 1781, Rochambeau's troops - on their way to meet General Washington and his Continental Army - camped in Bolton, CT at what is now Bolton Heritage Farm on Center Road. This was known as Camp Site Number Five. In a continuation of Bolton's 300th anniversary, the Heritage Farm Commission has teamed with Le Regiment Bourbonnais (https://www.regtbourbonnais.com/) to host a living history weekend of this encampment. This event is FREE to the public and will offer a glimpse to what a Revolutionary encampment would have been like. Parking areas will be marked and on the street.
