Dramatic readings were a common form of entertainment for 19th century families. The US Forest Service re-creates this at Grey Towers, ancestral home of the Pinchot family, as part of its Conservation and the Arts program. The US Forest Service provides these programs also as a way to carry on the family’s tradition of community hospitality.
