Pioneer Day in Clarke County

Clark County Museum's Pioneer Day grew out of the Museum's desire to preserve the ways of the early settlers of Clarke County and pass them on to new generations. A number of pioneer chores and activities are demonstrated in a living history festival. Crafts demonstrated include churning butter, wooden shingle making, making cane syrup, spinning cotton, and quilting. Project documentation includes a six-page written report, eleven 8 x 10 photographs, an information sheet on the Clarke County Museum, and four newspaper clippings.

Originally submitted by: Sonny Callahan, Representative (1st District).
