Explore the skills of daily life in the 18th and 19th centuries! Much of what we purchase from large stores today was produced by hand, at home or by a skilled craftsman, in centuries past. Meet artisans engaged in some of these historic activities and get a glimpse into what daily life might have been like in centuries past.

Meet craftsmen demonstrating blacksmithing, wood carving, spinning and weaving, open hearth cooking, basket making and more! Feeling historic? Try your own hand at several seasonal “chores” like candle-making or make a popular kid’s toy to take home!
