Winter on the Homestead
Saturday, January 25th, 2020
10 a.m. to 4 p.m.
Free with admission ($9 for adults, $8 for seniors and students; free for children 5 and under and for members)
Join us in one of Mecklenburg’s Oldest log cabins and experience winter on an 18th century homestead. Originally located off of North Tryon Street in Charlotte, the restored Ezekiel Alexander cabin provides a glimpse of life in early Charlotte. After the crops were harvested and the weather turned cold, families focused on surviving the winter. Many chores were completed inside by the fire. At this living history event you can see weaving, spinning, knitting, open-hearth cooking and warm up by the fire with a cup of hot tea! Children can make a yarn doll to keep.
