Although Heather has left for Germany, she wrote enough of her weekly "favorites" posts to last until the end of the season. Here is the next one.
#13 - PITCHFORK
This may seem to be just an ordinary pitchfork that we have here down at the museum, but its history is more exciting than you would think. This pitchfork is believed to be part of an important American historic event. Revolutionary soldier John Kneeland is said to have used this pitchfork to break open chests at the Boston Tea Party in 1773. The metal part would be part of the original pitchfork, but due to time the wooden handle has been replaced because of age and weathering.
Visit the Bradford County Historical Society Wednesday through Friday, 10 am to 4 pm to see this and hundreds of other local history pieces.
