Join us for our Annual Home Educators’ Living History Days for children. The program is geared for children ages 8 to 10 years old, although children younger and older benefit and can participate in the hands-on experience of 18th century life.

Programs rotate among spinning and weaving,blacksmithing, pottery, Colonial medicine, basket making, tin punching, and rope making. Groups may register by providing the number and ages of children, as well as the number of adults in attendance.

Home Educator groups are welcome, but please have one person responsible for registering the group!

Children’s author Jenny L. Cote will also be here for a creative writing workshop! There is no extra charge for this amazing experience.
