    A wheelwright demonstrates his craft at Wade House

Come help Wade House get ready for spring! Prepare and plant the gardens, fill straw ticks, air out quilts, make beds, black the stove and sweep floors. Experience behind-the-scenes tours of the Herrling Sawmill, making an "S" hook project in the blacksmith shop, candle dipping and log skidding. Come celebrate the household duties, the trades and the fun that helped shape this historic community.
