Walker Farms Pioneer Days
November 17 @ 9:30 am - 1:00 pm
An event every day that begins at 9:30 am, repeating until November 19, 2022
Journey back in time to the 1800’s when life was much simpler—or was it? See for yourself what it was like for our ancestors as they carved out an existence in the wilderness. Experience the sights, the sounds, the smells, and the work that made up their everyday life. See demonstrations of such skills as wood tools, butter churning, apple cider press, corn shucking, corn husk doll making, and much more! Don’t forget to visit historic Spring Frog Cabin for a cabin tour, which is open during Pioneer Days.
Walker Farm Pioneer Days is a hands-on, living history event geared for elementary aged students and families. Visitors move through different historical demonstrations which showcase period skills or jobs. Reservations are required for all attendees.
Registered groups will have an 90 minutes in the exhibit areas followed by an optional half hour turn at the picnic tables. While some demonstrations provide small samples of period food or drink, lunches are not available for purchase and should be brought from home. Thank you for your interest in this very special event. We look forward to welcoming you and your group to our sanctuary this November.
