Step back in time to a bygone era at the Cobblestone Museum on Saturday, August 26th from 11am-5pm for the Historic Trades Fair. Come and experience 19th century craftsmen plying their trade in this day-long immersive event with blacksmiths, printers, weavers, carpenters, wood joiners, chair caning, farmers, musicians, butter churning and more.
A Civil War encampment will also take place on site featuring uniformed soldiers with tents, gear and antique firearms.
The Cobblestone Museum features three cobblestone buildings and four wood frame buildings that house the historic trades collections. Artisans and craftsmen will be working in their respective fields throughout the day, in “open-house” format.
Admission to the Historic Trades Fair is available online or at the museum on the day of the event. Kids 12 and under are free with adult admission, making this a great family experience.
