Homeschool Field Trip ~ Wade House

Last Friday we enjoyed a lovely, autumn day with a large group of our homeschooling friends
at the Wade House in Greenbush.
The day started with a scavenger hunt and learning about many kinds of wagons and carriages
in the Carriage Museum.
Then a horse-drawn carriage took us to the historical area.

Outside the Wade House Inn, the kids got to help make candles the old-fashioned way.

It was a pot of tallow melted over the fire and the kids dipped in strings of cotton many, many times.

Inside the Wade House Inn, on the 3rd floor, are the guest rooms and a ballroom.

Kids playing old-fashioned games on the Wade House lawn.

Celene was determined master walking on stilts

And she did it!

Mesmerized by the very interesting blacksmith

Watching the stream

The sawmill demonstration was very interesting
