Pickle Palooza!


Hours 1:00 to 4:00 pm (stay as long as you like)


Pickling Offers a Taste of History

Come help and be a part of the late summer's kitchen work through the making of cucumber pickles. In addition to being quite tasty, pickling is a method used to preserve food to last through long winters.


This scrumptious undertaking will be presented in both the original 1840s Durant Hearth Room and the Victorian Kitchen added by Godfrey and Christina Peterson in the 1880s. Learn the process of this delicious aspect of history and enjoy an authentic day in the countryside!
