Rural Heritage Day at Landmark Park


Today more than 300 kids had some fun in the sun.

The field trip doubled as a history lesson, taking the kids back to the 1800's.

It was Landmark Park's annual Rural Heritage Day.

They did old fashioned demonstrations like sheep shearing, quilting and even plowing by hand.

"Every day out here is the best day. Just to come out here and enjoy the outdoors, seeing what things were like back in the 1800's and see what it was like before electricity. That's what you try to teach the kids. You can't understand the future if you don't know the past," Volunteer Robert Eckenroth said.

Spring Farm Day is tomorrow at Landmark Park.

It's from 10:00 a.m. until 4:00 p.m.

Admission is $8 for adults and $4 for kids.
