Children's Heritage Day!

Sunday, May 6, 1-4 pm

Celebrate our heritage through Children's eyes on this very special Opening Day of our 45th Season!

Here in 18th century Talley Cavey, we look forward to having travelers stop by to share tales and news. This year we will welcome a special traveler, Award-Winning Author and Storyteller Robin Moore, to Talley Cavey Village! Join us at 2pm for a 45-minute storytelling performance which will feature traditional stories from the Pennsylvania frontier and demonstrations of old-time living skills.

Following the Storytelling, there will be a Book Signing with the Author where you may purchase autographed copies of his books. Robin's books are focused on Pennsylvania frontier history and folklore and are designed to be read aloud by the whole family. His books include The Bread Sister Trilogy, a series of three historical fiction novels about women, both young and old, Native and European, on our 18th century Pennsylvania Frontier and several collections of stories collected from the Pennsylvania mountains.

Robin Moore will also demonstrate essential living skills and give a hands-on experience as both adults and children pose for photo ops in traditional clothing and examine clothing tools and equipment used by frontier and native cultures in Western Pennsylvania.

Rain or Shine, there will be plenty to do today! Join us for this very special Family oriented day, filled with Stories and hands on activities. Children's Heritage Day is a chance for both today's and yesterday's children to reconnect with the "pass times" of past times. For this day, you can go to school in a one-room schoolhouse, play games, visit the blacksmith and help your family with needed tasks such as gathering wood, carding wool and grinding corn.
