This is a fun day for the whole family. Room Two will be a buzz in front of the log house area with many examples of long ago jobs and activities on the farm. Here are a few things in store for the day:
Corn shucking will be shown, as well as, shelling and grinding corn. Take some corn home for the birds. Examine the old tools for potato planting and corn planting. Learn how the harvesting machinery worked from members of the Antique Farm Machinery Club. Kids can take a pony ride. Get in line for a taste of what the Dutch oven crew is cooking up. (Could it be some of those delicious chicken and dumplings or cakes?) Taste the difference between honey, molasses, and sorghum. Taste the famous drink of fall—apple cider. Try the homemade butter. Want some homemade ice cream? See what is going on in the model train room. Check out the small animals and see what the ladies are working on with their needles. The Stone Carvers will be busy carving on their stones. Come enjoy the day at the Dubois County Museum.
