Heritage Acres Fall Threshing Weekend
September 15 - September 16
HERITAGE ACRES is having the Fall Threshing Weekend in the field and in the inner grounds on Sat. and Sun. Sept. 15 and 16 from 9 to 4 p.m. Steam and gas engines are on display along with the old-time grain threshing machine in the big field. All buildings are all open, as is the BBQ and pantry kitchen. People can visit the old schoolhouse, imagine themselves living in an old log house or attending church services in our small country chapel. Come see how the blacksmith plies his trade and visit the museum which is full of old household effects and services. Wander down to the pond and see the Newman Boathouse with all its old and restored marine artifacts; or take a hike through our forest trail. Gate admission is $8 per person for the first two people (teens and adults) OR $20. per car/group with 3 or more teens and adults. Children 12 years and under are free. Trains are running from 10 to 3:30 by donation. The People Puller and the Steam Driven hay ride will also be running, free of charge!
