April 28th History Day
Saturday, the 28th of April, is "History Day" at the museum. Stop in and learn how to spin fiber into yarn with a spinning wheel or drop spindle, (thanks to Pam Yates and her spinning friends,) talk to Steve Slifer, the cobbler, and see how to use his tools to make or repair shoes or other leather items. Virginia Tucker will bring her hand crank sewing machine and a treadle machine so you can see how they are used. Ron Yates will teach you how to shoot marbles with the aid of Gary Sipe. Later, you can participate in or just watch the egg and spoon race, sack race or simply play on the merry-go-round. The outbuildings will be open as well as the museum and there is additional parking behind the big metal building. Drive down the lane to the east of the building or park at Westphal Electric, just west of the museum. Admission is FREE. It will begin at 1 and last until about 4.
