There are different activities that children can participate in each day.

You could also grind wheat and coffee, march like a soldier, learn how to start a fire with flint and steal, and join our Franklin Hose Company bucket brigade. Activities also include self-guided tours of buildings and printing an 1872 calendar (activities subject to change). This is a great outing for families, babysitters, grandparents and their grandchildren, etc. Enjoy different activities each Tuesday! Website: www.heritagehillgb.org
