Spring ‘History in Action Days’ at Historic White Pine Village

MASON COUNTY — The Mason County Historical Society invites the public to join Historic White Pine Village’s “History In Action Days,” where history comes alive.

The dates are May 10, 17, 24, 31 and June 7.

Each of the 30 museum buildings are filled with artifacts, telling their particular part of pioneer history. During History In Action Days, interpreters help students understand what they are looking at and explain how pioneer families lived.

Several special activities are usually taking place throughout the village as well, like candle making, flint knapping, blacksmith, sawmill demonstrations, storytelling, spinning, loom weaving or woodcarving.

Historic White Pine Village will be a memorable and educational trip for any class or group of classes. The society welcomes reservations for any day, and are giving an advance notice of the seven “History In Action Days” being planned.

The “History in Action Days” is at a cost per student and chaperones (teachers are free of charge), which includes an ice cream cone or popcorn from the Old Fashioned Ice Cream Parlor, and the gift shop will be open with offers of historic toys, candy and gifts for sale.

Advance reservations are required, with payment due upon arrival for this special event. Email reservation requests to michelle@mchshistory.org.
