Description: The Frontier Culture Museum tells the story of the thousands of people who migrated to colonial America. To tell the story of these early immigrants and the life they created here during the 1600s and 1700s, the museum has moved or reproduced examples of traditional rural buildings from England, Germany, Ireland, West Africa, and America. These exhibits engage visitors with living history demonstrations, showing rural life and culture in their homelands and the life these colonists created in the new colonial back country. The museum also has a one-room schoolhouse and a working blacksmith’s shop. On the Fall Homeschool Day, visitors are invited to participate in extra hands-on activities and schoolhouse lessons throughout the day. Visitors can expect to see cooking, gardening, flax and wool spinning, blacksmith demonstrations, woodworking, rare-breed animals, and more!
Additional Information: Visitors are encouraged to bring a packed lunch to enjoy at the picnic tables. The event is outdoors and will be held rain or shine; remember to dress accordingly. No pets are allowed on-site.
