FREE! This event will feature our new Coal Miners Museum in the former location of the Miners’ Mule Stable at Evergreen. Learn about how coal was mined for the family and by the coal companies. This building is the trailhead for a 1 mile coal and nature trail as well as the first building completed of the former coal camp here on the property.
Ellen McDaniel-Weissler, a local favorite, will visit with us as Rebecca Boone, a pioneer woman in Appalachia and wife of Daniel Boone. Visit with Rebecca, a heroine of history, and enjoy an interactive experience of stories and songs of life during her time and in Appalachian Culture.
Make and take activities include: Strawberry Jam, and The Rag Coat – The Use of Fabrics to Tell Stories with Maggie Pratt. Participants will create a crazy quilt square in the style of the rag coat, using scrap fabric and notions.
Join us for tours of the Farmhouse Museum and Agriculture Museum or visit our Evergreen Cupboard for gifts, desserts and drinks.
