From making rope to hammering at the forge … a variety of hands-on activities, demonstrations and reenactments will continue for the remainder of this Spring Break week at Pioneer Museum.
From today, March 12, through Saturday, March 15, fun for all ages will be featured on the museum’s grounds between the hours of 10 a.m. and 5 p.m. at 325 West Main Street.
Planned activities, also the kind to help visitors realize what life was once like for this city’s early settlers, include making corn-husk dolls, quilting, spinning and a quick bite of a biscuit or cobbler from an authentic chuckwagon, folk song sing-alongs, lively storytelling, a one-room schoolhouse and more.
“Stepping back in time makes history come alive,” said Evelyn Weinheimer, director of archives and programs.
“There will also be re-enactors on site to help us experience the days of Mountain Men, Buffalo Soldiers, Red Rovers and more,” she said.
