Antique Autos on Display
Saturday, June 8 from 10 a.m.-2 p.m.
The Horseless Carriage comes to Walnford with these shining examples of pre-WWII automobiles displayed across our shady lawn. Stroll the grounds, tour the house, see the grist mill in operation and imagine when life in the fast lane never hit 50 mph.
The Roots of Root Beer
Sunday, June 23 from 1-4 p.m.
Sip a tasty brew and identify some of the many ingredients used in what was originally considered a healthful tonic as you learn the fascinating history of this 19th c. soft drink and its connection to the Waln family. We present fun for all ages with historical facts in a beautiful landscape for you to enjoy.
Weaving a Seat – Chair Caning
Sunday, July 14 from 1-4 p.m.
Comfortable and decorative, caned seats were a popular feature of many 19th century chairs. We will provide a “show and tell” afternoon to enhance your visit to Historic Walnford with a variety of historic chairs on display and the opportunity to “sit a spell” on the front porch while the almost forgotten craft of cane chair seats is demonstrated.
Edible History – Ice Cream!
Sunday, August 4 at 3 p.m.
There is no better time to enjoy this cool creamy treat than a summer afternoon in the shade of the ice house at Historic Walnford. Help us crank and then consume batches of ice cream made from historical recipes using 19th century technology.
