The Sam Bell Maxey House State Historic Site invites the public to enjoy various Easter activities during the “Easter Egg Scramble at the Maxey House” on Saturday, Apr 8, at 10:00 am and 2:00 pm. Visitors can participate in an egg hunt, or “scramble,” on the grounds, followed by crafts such as colored egg wreaths and the classic Victorian optical illusion toy, thaumatropes. Yard games will also be available for play throughout the event. Site staff advises that visitors arrive early for the egg hunt.

“This Easter event is one we look forward to every year at the Maxey House. Not only is it exciting to see the children dash to get as many eggs as possible, but this event also has historical significance,” said Elana Barton, site educator. “Lala Long used to have Easter activities for neighborhood children on the grounds. In our collection, we have a picture of the neighborhood children in their Easter best with their baskets after one of Lala’s Easter egg hunts. ‘Easter Egg Scramble at the Maxey House’ is a fun way to continue one of Lala’s traditions while inviting the community to have fun on the grounds.” This free event is open to children of all ages. In addition, house tours will be available during the event at the regular admission price of $4.00 per adult, $3.00 for children 6-18 years old, and free for children five and under.

Maxey served in the U.S.-Mexico War as a Confederate general and two-term U.S. Senator. Members of the Maxey family lived in the house until 1966, and the restored house reflects almost 100 years of their continuous use. For more information, visit
