LIVING HISTORY DAYS

Step back in time to the 1790s, as our sawmill and logging village comes alive with volunteers in period dress, performing tasks typical of the season. Roaming the site to the music of bagpipes or fiddles, families, groups, and individuals sample beanhole beans, reflector oven biscuits, and cider (hot or cold). See demonstrations by spinners and weavers, blacksmiths, basket makers, and other crafters. Children can dip candles, press apples for cider, split cedar shakes, row a bateau, and take a ride in a horse-drawn wagon.
During Living History Days, we provide a courtesy van to transport guests unable to walk between the parking lot and the covered bridge at the settlement. "Period-appropriate sanitary facilities" are always available at the site, but for Living History Days, port-a-potties, handicapped accessible and standard, are also available. The Museum Gift Shop and a lunch wagon will also be open and ready for business.
