Experience the chores of the mid-1800’s through period crafts, demonstrations, games and hands-on activities when you visit Oaklands Mansion’s “Day of Washing, Churning & Learning”, slated for May 11, 2018, from 9:00 a.m. until 1:00 p.m. at the historic site, located at 900 North Maney Avenue in Murfreesboro.

This event will focus on chores of the mid-1800’s through hands-on activities for students and adults alike. Plantation activities such as clothes washing, butter churning, quill writing, and rug beating will be explored. Artisans will be on the grounds to share their crafts and talents. Other activities scheduled for the event are: scavenger hunt of the exterior of the mansion, kneading dough and limited house tours. Crafts and games for the children such as: sack races, hoops-n-sticks, graces and 1860’s dress up will also be available.

“It gives us great pleasure to share the house museum and grounds with our community and the surrounding counties. There are so many new members to our area that have not experienced our rich civil war history,” said Oaklands educational director, Mary Beth Nevills. Teachers and parents can look forward to this event again when they attend “Autumn in the Oaks” in fall each year. Reservations are being accepted for this spring educational field day which is open to public and private school groups and home school groups.

“Day of Washing, Churning & Learning” is presented by Oaklands Mansion. Admission is $5.00 per student, $5.00 per adult and free for teachers with 10 or more students and with school ID. Check-in and complimentary parking will be at the Roberts Street Pavilion. This event is open to the public with reservations required for groups.
