Member Morning

children speak to the general store shopkeeper


Wednesday, September 6, 2017
9:30 am - 10:30 am

General Store Shopping Spree

Adults, Children ages 3-8

Visit the Greteman’s General Store for a young children’s shopping scavenger hunt. Discover some of the more unusual items in the store stock. Children and adults will have a firsthand chance to weigh coffee beans in a scale, count out items to complete a customer’s order, and search the store to find items on a picture shopping list. Practice paying for the order with pretend 1875 money. Not a Living History Farms member? Sign up now!

NEW for 2017: We are offering a new program for our members this year: Member Mornings; exclusive members-only immersive experiences each month! If you loved Member Mondays in the past, this new program is perfect for you! But instead of just Mondays, we’ll offer programs on a variety of days throughout the season from May-October. We hope that this varied schedule helps more members participate! In addition to the expanded schedule, another change is that these programs will be offered for FREE to LHF members!

Pre-registration is not required, but space is limited. Each program is first-come, first-served. The first fifteen member children who sign up at the admissions desk on the day of the program will get to participate. Children must have parental/adult accompaniment to participate. Please arrive early to reserve your spot and allow time to travel to the historic site. All programs begin at 9:30am and last approximately 30-45 minutes.
