October: Agriculture

Agriculture was a part of everyday life for the families who lived in Burritt’s historic homes. Join us in this month of harvest to take a look at some of the plants in Burritt’s heirloom garden – there may be some you recognize, and some that you’ve never even heard of! You’ll compare the garden tools of the past to those we use today and meet the real “horse power” that helped farmers with their work in the 1800s.
