Witness history come alive as costumed interpreters demonstrate historical activities, trades, and more while sharing about life in the early 1900s in rural North Carolina.
Living history interpreters will be stationed throughout the museum's grounds and historic buildings sharing about trades, tasks and other aspects of rural life in the years between 1900 and 1939 including one-room schoolhouses, blacksmithing, home life, fabric arts, farming & gardening, woodworking, and more. You'll be able to talk with them about work and life in the early 1900s and maybe even try your hand at some of the farm activities being demonstrated!
The Living History program will be offered on Saturdays from April 23rd through October 29th from 10am to 2pm each week.* Each Saturday will be unique with a rotating set of demonstrators and seasonal variations throughout the year, showing how farm life flowed with the seasons.
*This schedule may change due to weather or holidays.
