Old Mill Days

October 4, 2014 - October 5, 2014

$5

October 4th and 5th 2014, 10:00am – 4:00pm.
Bothe-Napa Valley State Park.

Come enjoy Napa Valley’s rural past at this pioneer family celebration and see how hard our forefathers had to work each day! Try your hand at farm chores such as corn husking, corn shelling, wheat threshing, butter making, apple pressing, hand sewing, washing clothes on a washboard, twisting jute into rope or sawing logs into planks.  You can exchange your modern money for “golden eagle” coins to be spent on various activities such as making a corn husk doll, calligraphy lessons, waxed egg decorating or wheat weaving.  To add to the experience of stepping back in time, our mill docents wear period correct clothing and hats. Old time clothes are available for children to wear. Musicians play old-time music. Chili, cornbread and cider available for an additional fee.

Saturday and Sunday 10:00–4:00.  $5.00 fee; kids under 6 free.
