For the Kids

The children’s area can be found behind the Bradford House Museum.

Lil' Rebel Area

Children can experience a frontier classroom: writing with a quill pen, reading from McGuffey Readers, and practicing lessons on slates.

They can try 18th-century games such as rolling hoops, cup and ball, hopscotch, stilts and quoits.

And they will learn about the role of youngsters on the frontier, trying their hands at the types of domestic chores required of children, such as gathering eggs, fetching water, and washing clothes in a tub with a washboard. Who says learning can't be fun???

The Lil' Rebel area is co-sponsored by Washington Financial and Washington County Community Foundation.
