About

Volunteers may choose to participate in village life by becoming an interpreter in any of our historic village buildings or, by learning a craft (blacksmithing, carpentry, wood carving, gardening, basketry, weaving etc) that they can then teach to upcoming volunteers or members of the public. All training is included as part of the volunteer experience so no initial experience is necessary (although it is welcome!). Our goal is to encourage learning and preserving traditional skills and arts of the mid-19th century in order to pass them down from generation to generation.
