The Greenwich Historical Society celebrated fall on Sunday afternoon complete with piles of hay and pumpkins.
Anna Greco, Curator of Education for the Greenwich Historical Society said "It's always an important time of year for the site. For the Bush family during the new nation period they were harvesting, trying to get all of their food for the winter time. For the Holleys, they were doing a similar thing, harvesting their food. They also celebrated their daughters birthdays. The [Holley] twins were born on Halloween so we always like to have a big celebration around this time of year."
Families took part in the scarecrow competition as well as arts and crafts and colonial games on the grounds of the Bush-Holley House.
Caroline who built a scarecrow with her family said she wanted to use her scarecrow for Halloween.
"It started when Bella's best friend was coming and then my mom said we should come. I don't know how we ended up entering the competiton but it sure was fun! said Sophie & Bella who built two scarecrows for the competition - a mom and a baby scarecrow.
First Selectmen Peter Tesei said "It's a great place to have an event like this given the historical nature of it. To be outside and enjoy the outdoors and everything that has to do with fall - the smell of the hay, the harvest, the hay rides with the tractor - it's very New England and something that I think brings the community together."
