Labor Day Weekend at Castle in the Clouds September 4th 

Monday | Castle in the Clouds | 455 Old Mountain Rd, Moultonborough

Castle in the Clouds is excited to announce a captivating Labor Day Weekend celebration, paying homage to the rich history of labor and the stories that have shaped this iconic estate. From August 29th through September 4th, visitors are invited to partake in a series of engaging programs and events that shed light on the lives of those who built and maintained Lucknow Mansion. Kicking off the weekend’s festivities on Tuesday, August 29th, join Castle in the Clouds Curator Robin Sherman for a special presentation The Shoes That Built the Castle at the Moultonborough Public Library. Following the presentation, an exhibit about labor’s role in history will be available for viewing at the Moultonborough Public Library during regular library hours throughout Labor Day weekend and for a limited time this fall. On Friday, September 1st, the Castle Close-Up Tour: The Servant Experience offers a unique lens through which visitors can explore Lucknow Mansion. Venture beyond the grandeur of the main rooms to uncover the intimate living quarters and workspaces of the estate staff. This one-hour guided tour provides insights into the servant experience, offering a deeper understanding of their contributions to the mansion’s operation. The tour is a glimpse into the history and daily lives of those who served within the mansion’s walls. On Labor Day, September 4th, Castle in the Clouds welcomes families to a day of celebration in the picturesque fields of the estate. The Labor Day Family Picnic & Mini Parade brings a touch of nostalgia to the holiday, reminiscent of the traditions that have been cherished for generations. Guests are encouraged to bring their own picnic lunches or enjoy delectable offerings from Café in the Clouds. Festivities include lawn games, craft activities, and a unique opportunity to craft musical instruments from recycled materials. The highlight of the day will be a mini parade around the field at 1:45pm, where homemade instruments will take center stage. Delving deeper into the history of Labor, Robert Perreault’s enlightening presentation on September 4th at 5:00pm sheds light on the lives of textile workers from the Amoskeag Manufacturing Company. Through captivating storytelling, Perreault explores how individuals from various backgrounds transitioned from agrarian to industrial societies, delving into the effects on families, cultures, work dynamics, and worker relationships. This presentation is made possible by a grant from the New Hampshire Humanities: Humanities to Go program.
