Homemaking on the Frontier

March 21 @ 5:30 pm - 6:30 pm

Free

Join us with speaker Eddie Price! Take A journey back to 1811 and experience homemaking on the frontier. After clearing timberland, fencing off pastures, and planting crops, homemakers involved themselves in every aspect of building a home from available materials. Roofing, flooring, insulation, heating, water supply, and lighting were considerations then as now. Learn how frontier folk cultivated and preserved their food, made their clothes, doctored their families, and more. Cooking on open hearths, hemp and flax breaking, heckling, spinning, weaving and dyeing are examined. Native American and folk remedies are discussed, along with recreational activities and more.
