Ameliasburgh Heritage Day

The grounds of the Ameliasburgh Historical Museum and Pioneer Village were a busy place on Sunday, Aug 31st. Volunteers pitched in to provide visitors with the opportunity to make their own butter and enjoy it on fresh-roasted corn or popcorn, to see the operating 1910 Golden Corliss steam engine, see how rope is made, see how woodworking was done without power tools, see how wool is spun into yarn, see the blacksmith shop in operation, or join in the children’s games! The Heritage Day is an annual event, and one to entertain the whole family.
