Pioneer Day

September 23, 2017 @ 10:00 am - 4:00 pm

Pioneer Day is an educational experience of pioneer times held annually on the grounds of the museum, this year on Saturday, September 23, 2017 from 10am to 4pm.

This one-day event boasts of more than 40 demonstrators of pioneer crafts and skills, such as butter churning, blacksmithing and quilting.  

Children of all ages will delight in the tremendous Children’s area where they can be enlightened in a one-room schoolhouse, create cornhusk dolls, and pet chickens and goats. In addition, attendees can enjoy a covered wagon pulled by majestic horses on a beautiful ride around the Pound House grounds.

Civil war and cowboy re-enactors authentically demonstrate the past with rifles and even a small cannon; a period costume shop allows everyone a chance to take part in the festivities as a “settler” in their own right!

The wide array of sweet and savory food offerings, such as the Pounds Grounds confectionary, plus folk and bluegrass bands and engaging storytelling, give all who attend a marvelous opportunity to experience life as it was in the mid-1800s.

Being a mom can be a lonely experience if you allow it to be. We know all too well what it feels like when you are juggling feedings and life and then somehow you wake up one day and realize that your social calendar has taken a backseat. We would love it if you would take the time to join us for some various playdates and mom’s night out events throughout the year. Since everyone has different schedules and needs we will be doing our best to vary the dates, times, locations, and age ranges of the activities we plan.

Make sure you follow us on FacebookInstagramPinterest, and Twitter to stay abreast of the latest dates and events. All event registration is first come, first served and moms must be registered in advance.
