Bread & Butter

  • Durant House Museum 37W700 Dean St St Charles, IL 60175 (map)

Getting back to basics by learning about making bread and butter by hand is what this program is all about. These tasks, done weekly, were essential for any farm family, not only fulfilling the family’s needs but also for bartering too. Visitors will be able to help in the process of churning cream into butter and get a chance to see old butter molds and stamps on display.

$3 for adults/$1 for kids for these hands on history programs are appreciated.
