Get a closer look at trades of the eighteenth century in Newlin’s “History at Work” series. Members of Newlin Grist Mill’s staff, volunteers, and outside artisans will demonstrate their crafts and talk with visitors about how different trades and skills were integral to life in colonial Pennsylvania and to the operation of Newlin Grist Mill.
In 2021, the program will take place on the last Saturday of the month from July through October, 10am-3pm. Planned demonstrations include:
- July – Millwrighting
- August – Soap-making
- September – Blacksmithing
- October – Food Preservation
“History at Work” is free and open to the public of all ages.
Demonstrations this season will not include hands-on participation and will be socially distanced for health and safety.
