Harvest at the Homestead
Step back in time to the 1800s as interpreters and skilled crafts people bring the past to life at the Vaughan Cabin. Among the things to do and see will be open hearth cooking, blacksmithing, woodworking, sewing, spinning, candle-dipping, and a Civil War camp.
Get the most “bang” for your buck by watching the regularly scheduled musket and cannon firing demonstrations. This year will also feature sack, hoop, and three-legged races as well as corn hole and log cutting contests.
