In 1871, Joe E. Wilshire (“Old Joe”) purchased hundreds of acres of Oak Glen farmland for a saddle, a jug of whiskey, and a chicken. Your family, friends, and students might be surprised to know that much of that farm land is still, well…farmland! In this tour, we explore the crafts and skills of a homestead farm family. Spend a few hours with us, before the era of traffic jams, learning the simple home arts of 19th century farm life.
