Guests can view demonstrations in a wide variety of 19th-century trades such as spinning, bread making, candle making, pottery, rope and barrel making.

Tie everything together as you help the rope maker create another length. Finish it all off with the baker, and taste delicious bread from the brick oven. A must stop destination for the children!
