The Kingsley Heritage Celebration is Feb. 18 and includes Sparky and Rhonda with melodies, stories and music of the Civil War era; re-enactor Rose Person as Harriet Tubman, with poetry and Harriett Tubman’s role in the Civil War; a kid’s craft corner and house tours.

It continues Feb. 25 and includes re-enactors, demonstrations of life on the plantation and the Massachusetts 54th regiment, the first African-American unit in the war.
