Enjoy a fun-filled, family-oriented day of old-fashioned fun!
Listen to the Community Band on the front lawn, crank home-made ice cream and then enjoy a cup!
Docents will lead tours of the Byer/Nail House, Toolshed, and the Grounds and you can even take your seat (on time!) for a lesson by our local School Marm in the Eden Plain one-room schoolhouse.
Games and activities for kids and families including milking ‘Bessie’, panning for gold, or playing games from 1800’s.
Bar-B-Que – Second Sunday of September
A day to visit with friends, enjoy the museum and grounds, then enjoy a fabulous BBQ dinner of Tri-tip, locally grown corn on the cob, Rosie’s Tomato Salad, and a cookie for dessert.
Music by ‘The Buzzards’ sets a lively backdrop for Docent-led tours of the house and Toolshed, demonstrations of blacksmithing, hand spinning, and dutch oven cooking
See more pictures from the BBQ in the Gallery.
