Pioneers

Pioneers

Being a pioneer wasn’t all about making soap, hauling hay and milking cows!  The era introduced us to great thoughts, exciting people, and some unusual innovations!

This informative, interactive presentation allows participants to better enjoy and appreciate pioneer life.  Wearing a 19th century costume (ah, but no 18-inch waist corset!), Ms. Harris introduces participants to the social, political, and sexual politics of the times.  We are indebted today to the struggle between class and money, age and gender roles, immigration, and the wondrous innovation, ideas and products that come from this pioneer age.  Participants are invited to see first-hand a full array of authentic and antique items.
