Pioneer Days July 16-17


Step back in time to see and do as the pioneers did back when the homestead was settled in the 1850’s by the Stearns family and tour their house to experience how they lived.

Visit Stearns Homestead for Pioneer Days, Saturday, July 16 & Sunday, July 17, 12:00 pm to 4:00 pm both days.  Free Admission.

Various activities each day include: wool carding, spinning wool demonstration, learn how to cane a chair, make your own pioneer bonnet,  candle dipping, try your hand at tin punching,  play stick pull, learn how to braid, see how quilts are made, crocheting, weaving and more.  And of course, the animals will all be out for visitors.

Food and beverage will be available both days for sale in the cabin.

Animal feed will be available for sale at the Yankee-style barn.
