Smith McDowell House Museum is continuing its series of children’s education programs on Saturday, January 21, 2012 from 10:30 am to 12:30 pm at the museum (283 Victoria Road). The “Crafty Historian,” Museum Education Coordinator Lisa Whitfield, will be presenting a program entitled “Oh, Pioneers.” The rural folkways will come to life with hands on activities and stories. There will even be a barn dance for everyone to enjoy! Participants will also be invited to make a pioneer craft to take home. Children above the age of nine may come to the event without a parent, but younger children will need adult supervision. Admission: $5 each to cover craft expenses. Reservations are suggested, so call by November 12. 16. Call 838-253-9231 or email email@example.com (Inclement weather date is January 28).
“The pioneer settlers of the late 1880s were tough folks,” said Whitfield. “It’s hard to imagine in our modern world what their lives were like.”
The Crafty Historian series will take place on third Saturdays of most months (March, May, July, August, and September) and include a program and a craft that is related to the program.
The Smith McDowell House Museum is operated by the Western North Carolina Historical Association and is open to the public Wednesdays through Saturdays from 10:00 am to 4:00 pm. Tour admission is $10 for adults, with reduced pricing for students, children and group tours. Call the Museum at (828) 253-9231 and visit our website at www.wnchistory.org for more information.Read the full article
