The Gate House Watch    

 

 

A knight from the Middle Ages, portrayed by Tom Smith, bestows knighthood on Shelbie K. at “Sir Knight.”  Sir Knight brought his shield, sword, and armor and spoke about his life as a Crusader.

Sergeant Tom Smith, a soldier with the Confederate Army, talks about his weapons with brothers Scott and Justin Harris at "A Confederate Soldier's Story".

 

Children enjoyed touching turtles, giant tortoises, monitor lizards, snakes, and large pythons as the Sykesville Gate House Museum sponsored the "Reptile Wonders."  Brian Kristal of Nature to Go presented a hands-on, interactive program and discussed the animals' habitat and environment, along with predator/prey relationships.
