Come to Forest Home Farms Historic Park and the Glass House Museum for Fun on the Farm from 10:00am to 2:00pm the 2nd Saturday of each month. On these days you can step back in time to explore the site, enjoy tours, and participate in a free activity from days gone by.
On January 12, 2013 the theme for the day will be “Textiles and Toys.” On a chilly winter day it is time to work and play under shelter when you can. Visit the Walnut Barn to see demonstrations of old time fiber arts such as spinning, knitting and embroidery, and try your hand at darning. When your work is done, have fun testing your skills at games such as marbles, pick-up sticks, and Jacob’s ladder then make a wooden top to take home.
Tours of the restored Victorian Glass House Museum will be held at 10:00am, 11:00am, 12:00pm and 1:00pm and tours of Forest Home Farms Historic Park, including the tractor museum, at 11am and 1pm. Each tour lasts approximately 45 minutes and the fee is $5 per person or $8 for both tours taken on the same day. Tour tickets can be purchased in the Gift Shoppe. Children ages 2 and under are free.
