How much weight can two oxen pull?
Share daily life with your new friends on an early Western Reserve Farm! See the sheep, check on the chickens, observe the oxen at work, help with laundry and experience days on the farm.
How can a chore or hobby turn into a business?
The farmer takes products of agriculture needed for the home and turns it into a business. Take trips to town to deliver butter – and trade for a little food and fun! Do your neighbors need candles, or will the general store sell them for you? Learn about creating a business plan using what you have at hand.
How do we get a shawl from a sheep?
Wash wool and spin yarn, forage for dyestuffs, prepare dye and watch white wool be transformed into amazing color! Then use the new yarn to create a bit of cloth to keep.
What happens before the potter sits at the wheel to throw his first pot of the day?
The General Store needs mugs to sell! Find out for the potter how many and what kind are the best sellers. Prepare clay for molding a mug (as much fun as playing in the mud!), and then shape a clay piece of your own.
How does the glassblower handle molten glass?
Have an up-close view of all steps of the glassblowing process; learn about traditional shapes and colors, and the history and science behind glass. Best of all, make your own handcrafted glass piece!
What does the inside of a fiddle look like?
Take apart instruments to explore the science behind the sound, and explore traditional musical instruments – dulcimer, fiddle, harmonica – then make your own! Discovery-based learning activities include crafts and the joy of making and sharing music.

Who’s behind the brush for each decorated wall and floor?
Learn how design elements come together for stenciled decorations in our historic village homes, and how we know today what a home looked like years ago. Use what you learn to paint and stencil your own floor cloth!
How do the things we save tell the story for future generations?
Examine artifacts and documents from the archives for clues about people who lived in the Western Reserve long ago. Then create your plan for saving, sharing and storytelling for a mini-museum.

How did our 19th century friends make stories come alive?
Join our acting troop for your turn on stage! Practice your part, find props and costumes, and then spread the word far and wide for all to come and see the show!
What was life like for the Civil War soldier?
Meet the Sixth Ohio Volunteer Cavalry, and their horses, too! Train and drill with the soldiers, and experience camp life as we prepare for our annual Civil War Reenactment.

What was school like for kids in the country?
The school bell is ringing! Report for class in the one-room log schoolhouse and be prepared to learn something surprising about lessons from long ago. Time for recess, lunch and perhaps a bit of mischief!
