"Come to the Eastern Carolina Village & Farm Museum!"
Village plans third ‘Family Day’ Nov. 5th
GREENVILLE—The Eastern Carolina Village and Farm Museum has rescheduled its third annual Family Fun Day of activities, craft demonstrations, refreshments and music for Saturday, Nov. 5, 10 a.m.-2 p.m., at its site on County Home Road, adjacent to the Farmers’ Market, south of Fire Tower Road. The event was postponed from Oct. 8 because of wet weather.
The event will be free to the public and will focus on family-oriented activities and children’s games, as well as domestic crafts, that would have been commonplace in the 1840-1940 time period, particularly during the turn of the last century.
Among the activities will be children’s games, such as sack races; craft demonstrations; and a small encampment exhibit showing the life of soldiers during the Civil War away from the front lines. Some of the Village’s buildings, including the Satterthwaite Store and one-room school house, will be open to visitors, and the Sandy Ridge Ramblers will provide music during the event.
The Eastern Carolina Village and Farm Museum, formerly the East Carolina Village of Yesteryear, contains nearly 20 buildings, either original or reproduction, and displays thousands of artifacts from the 1840-1940 period that show small town and farm life and times.
