Harvest Gathering of 1858

November 4, 2018 · 12:00 pm - 4:00 pm
Cost: Free

Step back in time to the 1850’s at harvest time when visiting the Powers-Walker House in Glacial Park. Try your hand at corn shelling, grinding corn into flour, or making a corn husk or yarn doll. Witness harvest activities like the baking of bread in the wood-burning cookstove and grinding herbs for winter use. Tour the historic farmhouse to learn more about its restoration, or visit with a Cavalry sergeant and his horse as they demonstrate the weapons of the era used to protect these frontier lands. Find more info here.
