The Heritage Farmstead Museum is delighted to bring back the Victorian Eggstravaganza and Spring Festival.
This spring holiday tradition offers a glimpse into Farm life on the Blackland Prairie as well as an opportunity to celebrate Spring with our traditional family-friendly activities.
Join us as we showcase volunteers demonstrating the art of sheep shearing, as well as hands-on skirting, washing, spinning and weaving techniques, in an informative exhibit titled From Sheep to Shawl.
Take a tour through the Farrell Wilson Home which features the latest exhibit “For He’s a Jolly Good Fellow.”
Enjoy hands-on demonstrations, make a craft, take a hay-ride throughout our 4 acre site.
