Penmanship and the Quill on 9/16/18

     What did we do in the days before word processing, texting and spell check?  In early America, learning to write properly took much practice and involved many materials and techniques.  The museum will highlight this important skill on September 16, 2:00 to 4:00.  The program includes a display of early writing implements; children may try their hand at writing with a quill pen.  Tours of the 18th century fully furnished farmhouse and demonstrations of open-hearth cooking using seasonal recipes and ingredients are also included.  Admission is $4 ages 13 and older; $3 ages 3-12 and free age 2 and younger. No reservations are necessary. For information, please call the museum office weekday mornings or email.
