Get to work in an authentic heritage log house! Cook on a real wood stove, churn and prepare butter, card wool, and learn to use a spinning wheel. In our workshop weave on a barn loom, engage in wood working and explore various tools, and then enjoy a snack made with “many hands”. Spend the second half of the day exploring select buildings in the historic Village.
