Spend the day with the kids playing in an 1890’s-era baseball game, costumes included, or pilot an 1859 hot air balloon into the sky. Each day there are hands-on crafts from a century past, cooking classes and chores for the kids to perform, including milking cows and gathering eggs. Learn fire starting skills and how to track an animal. Saturdays are dedicated to science activities, old and new.
