Summer Fun for
Parents/Grandparents and Children at Old Salem!

On June 25 and July 9, Old Salem Museums & Gardens is offering a “One Day Summer Adventure for Families,” a unique opportunity for grandparents/parents and children.

Spend the day (from 9 a.m. to 2:30 p.m.) with your child(ren) or grandchild(ren) discovering history through hands-on fun! Activities range from making clay pots to cooking in the historic kitchen using 18th-century recipes and hearth cooking techniques (which you will get to eat!), writing with a quill pen, making a corn husk boy or girl doll to take home, and much, much more. Everyone participates in each activity. The pottery that you create will be fired, glazed, and ready for pickup in September. Perfect for children in grades 3-8.

For more information and to register, contact Darlee Snyder at 336-721-7390 or email: The registration deadline for the June 25 Summer Adventure is June 10 and for the July 9 event, the deadline is June 24.
