Daily during April Vacation Week

After a long and snowy winter the History Workshop is ready to throw open its doors and launch into a real old fashioned spring cleaning.  Roll up your sleeves and join us to learn how to wash clothes using a wooden wash board and tub, and make some soap while you scrub.  The cast iron pots and the silver need polishing and the dusty rugs need a thorough cleaning with the rug beater. Whitewash a wall, sweep the floors with a homemade broom and use a feather duster. “Spring” into spring, with a cleaning fling!
