Horse-Drawn Days at Stonefield
Saturday, September 21, 2013 10 am–5 pm
Step back to a time, before steam engines or tractors arrived on the farm, when horses did all work. Farmers used horses to plow the fields in the spring, harvest the crop in the fall, haul goods to town and transport people. Horse-Drawn Days will help you relive this way of life through a variety of activities throughout the day. Popular and prolific Wisconsin Historical Society Press author Jerry Apps will discuss and sign copies of his popular book, 'Horse-Drawn Days: A Century of Farming with Horses' from noon to 2 pm.
Adults $9; children (5-12) $4.50; students and senior citizens (65 and over) $7.75; family (two adults and two or more dependent children 5-17) $24.
Stonefield comprises a re-created 1900-vintage rural farming village and the State Agricultural Museum, which traces the history of Wisconsin agriculture from its inception to the 20th century. Stonefield, named after the estate farmed by Wisconsin's first governor Nelson Dewey, also includes Dewey's home site.
