Consider bringing your group to one of the Village’s many special events.

Any time your group visits Ushers Ferry, the staff will be happy to recommend caterers who can help extend your visit with a meal, snack, or light dessert at the Village.

No matter how you choose to visit, we are confident that your group will leave pleased with their trip and pleased with the clever planner who brought them to Ushers Ferry Historic Village.
