Much of the history of the prohibition era in America focuses on what Americans could not consume - alcohol. Grab your lunch or a snack at home and join The W.H. Stark House’s Historian Joshua Cole as we take a look at some the foods and drinks that tried to take alcohol’s place in the American diet and society. Many of the nation’s most beloved and cherished sweets owe their modern prominence and, in some cases, very existence to the prohibition and temperance movement. We’ll take a look at how people in Orange and the rest of the country struggled to fill the void left by alcohol. The most common solution? Lots and lots of sugar.

Participants must register for this FREE program in advance. 

This program will be broadcast live from The W.H. Stark House through Zoom. Participants are encouraged to download Zoom prior to the event.
