View of the Howe House kitchen.

We toured the inside of the house. The walls were of stone 18" thick. The furnishings and every thing in the house was once property of the Howe family. The last surviving heir left EVERY THING to the historical society.

Union soldier in 1861 uniform.

Becky disarmed this soldier with her smile.

HALT! Friend or foe?

This soldier was not disarmed by my smile. If he asks you friend or foe you better say friend.

A basket maker demonstrates her craft.

Lye soap was made and sold.

Spinning loom.

Cooking as they did a hundred or more years ago.

Cider Press. We got fresh cider and it was delicio

Free wagon rides for any one who wished.

This blacksmith was very good.

Leather worker makes a pair of chaps.

Perfect weather for an out door quilting bee.

Making butter the old fashioned way.
