Pioneer Lessons/Lessons in the Schoolhouse

July 4 @ 2:00 PM - August 25 @ 3:00 PM

Come join us in our homestead for an afternoon of old fashioned skills! There is no end to the things we will learn… make a yummy baking recipe with a little good old fashioned elbow grease, get that laundry cleaned and mended as fast as you can! Maybe make yourself a pair of cozy mittens for the cold weather? Polish up your readin’, writin’, and ‘rithmetic in the schoolhouse, try and beat your classmates at a game of memory, and see who can be the supreme spelling bee champion! You never know what you will learn!

All these skills were important to the people who settled the valley…see how you’d fare as a pioneer!

All ages welcome! (Yes, that includes “Kids at Heart” too…)
