Fall was the time for 19th-century Agricultural Societies to hold a Cattle Show. Many shows also included an Exhibition of Domestic Manufacture. Throughout the weekend, we are recreating such a display.  Please stop by to see an exhibition of vegetables, fruit, butter, cheese, and items of home manufacture such as handwoven cotton and woollen fabrics, knitted stockings and shawls, and fancy work.  Village manufactured items such as shoes, tin, pottery, brooms, baskets, straw braid, and books will also be on display.

Also this weekend, learn about saving your seeds for next year’s garden and preserving vegetables to last all year. Watch us use our dried flowers to make everlasting bouquets and weave baskets that are used for harvesting crops. Check back closer to the time for a schedule and a more detailed list!
