Ready, set, churn!


Try your hand at all manner of daily 18th century chores....just for the fun of it.


You and your children can garden, make candles, churn butter, wash Loyalist clothing in a laundry tub with the soap made onsite, spin wool, learn to make and write with a quill pen, and make toys such as a Jacob's Ladder.


You can also try your hand at making a traditional wagon wheel or a period shelf or footstool.


Take part in our regularly scheduled daily demonstrations and check out the special activities by contacting the museum.
