Ah, Fall. It is that time again to take a step back in time and visit the old homestead. There is a lot of work to be done on the farm. Much help is needed (or come to view). Come to the Dubois County Museum on Sunday, October 14, from 1-4pm, and experience Fall Harvest Day in this our Bicentennial Year of the founding of Dubois County. This is a fun day for the whole family. Room Two will be a buzz in front of the log house area with many examples of long ago jobs and activities on the farm. Here’s a few things in store for the day:
Corn shucking will be offered for the youth, as well as, letting try a hand in shelling and grinding corn using the farm tools. Take some corn home for the birds. Even play a corn hole game. Learn how the harvesting machinery worked from members of the Early Days Antique Club. Get a taste of fall with a hardy cup of homemade soup. Chili and chicken noodle will be offered. Taste the difference between honey, molasses, and sorghum. Enjoy the famous drink of fall—apple cider. Try the homemade butter. See what is going on in the model train room. Check out the small animals. An alpaca will be visiting for all to see. Come see what the ladies are working on with their needles. The Stone Carvers will be busy carving on their stones. Come enjoy the day at the Dubois County Museum.
