Experience 100 years of changing women’s and children’s fashions as modeled by our local families. Throughout the day on Sunday, a lead interpreter from our historic village staff will guide small groups to different houses on a unique “Fashions Through Time Walking Tour.”

Life on the Farm – Springtime was an exciting time of year for 19th-century people. Babies were being born and there was planting to be done. Come visit our new baby lambs, see our young oxen Star and Bright, and help the farmers with chores around the Pioneer Farm.

The museum will be open each day from 10:00am until 4:00pm.
