May 20 Living History Day
It is time again for one of the PVHS’s best-loved events: Living History Day. This is the day when we
take you and your children back to earlier days and let you experience for a moment or two how your
grandparents lived—no videos or television and, for many, no electric lights. They made many things at
home—clothing, toys, growing food and preserving it.
On Sunday, May 20th, from 1 to 4 p.m. in the Museum garden, we will be having stations where the children
can experience gold mining, churning butter, making tortillas, using tools, creating dolls and toys.
They may also wash clothes, or grind wheat, and watch demonstrations of quilting and spinning.
The day is free and open to the public. Refreshments will be available. The Museum will also be open to
view the current exhibits including the history of the development of the telephones and hand-made fire
