About the Event
The Tobacco Farm Life Museum's new Living History program will officially open for the public's enjoyment on Saturday, April 23rd from 10am-2pm. The Living History program will be offered every Saturday after that from 10 am to 2 pm through October 29th.
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!
