Hands On History

August 24, 2019 | 10:00 am - 4:00 pm

Event Navigation

Step back in time and try your hand at the crafts and activities practiced by the folks who lived here long ago, listen to the music and stories of the pioneers; black and white, and tales of the native experience. Library Park will be filled with activities you can give a try…Wheat grinding, Beeswax Candle Making, Crosscut Sawing, Blacksmithing, Quilting, Weaving, Spinning, Bread Making, Cider Pressing and more.  Try your hand at washing clothes with a Washboard and tub, play with pioneer toys, make yourself a pioneer doll. Get your hands dirty panning for gold and watch a Kalapuya elder demonstrate flint knapping.  This year we are expanding to the Moyer House for a lot of the domestic activities.  This free activity is supported by a generous donation from Randy Tripp.
