    Montgomery — The Friends of Hill-Hold and Brick House will host their annual Pumpkin Festival from noon to 4 p.m. on Sunday, Oct. 16, at Hill-Hold in Campbell Hall. The afternoon will feature pumpkin rolling, guessing the weight of the pumpkin, pumpkin painting, waxing leaves, and cooking over an open-hearth fire. The one-room schoolhouse will be the site for creepy crawling crafts, sponsored by the Hamptonburg 4-H and the American Doll Club. Refreshments will be available for sale. Located on Route 416, between Goshen and Montgomery, Hill-Hold includes a stone farmhouse built in 1769 that features wide plank floors, paneling, a large fireplace, and original furnishings. It depicts what life was like on a farm in the 1830’s, an era of candlelight, fireplace heat, homegrown food, and homespun clothes. The farm was home to the Bull-Jackson family for more then 200 years. Admission is $3 for adults, $2 for children, and $7 for a family. For more information, call 457-4905.
