Johnston Farm Family Fun Day June 2010

Our 2010 season kicked into high gear with last weekend's Family Fun Days.  Old and young alike enjoyed watching the Ohio Village Muffins 1860s baseball team, taking a ride on the 1830s canal boat, visiting the Indian Museum, and touring the 1815 farmhouse. 

Spinning, weaving, cooking and candle making demonstrations, along with a chance to try your hand at nineteenth century chores and Native American beading, rounded out the day. Take a look at the smiles on the faces of those attending and make certain you mark your calendar to come to the next event, Life on an Indian Agency, July 10th and 11th. There will be more of the same plus 1812 reenactors and a first person presentation featuring John Johnston's mother, Elizabeth Bernard Johnston, sharing what it was like to live life as a single mother on the frontier.
