The village comes alive on Sundays when their volunteers dressed in period clothes demonstrate old time crafts. See the blacksmith make a horseshoe, treadle the 100 year old wood lathe and help make your own souvenir wooden goblet. Come and turn the handles on the corn shelling machine or join the Rope Maker and make a souvenir piece of rope on a 100 year old machine for free.

Groups are welcome.
