An Old-Fashioned Easter


Start your Easter fun at the 1830s Jones Stock Farm with a rousing game of egg pocking. Can you be the last to break? Then make your way to the 1860s Ryon Prairie Home for a lesson in Easter egg dyeing with natural dyes. What beautiful designs can you make? Just across the creek, visit the 1890s Davis Victoria Mansion to create an Easter card, which were all the rage in the late 1800s. And last, but certainly not least, our annual Easter Egg hunt will be held at 11 a.m., 1 p.m. and 3 p.m. at the 1930s George Ranch Home. Find as many as hard-boiled eggs as you can and trade them in for some yummy period candy. And this year, in a fun twist, we will have a children’s bonnet contest thirty minutes after each hunt at 11:30 a.m., 1:30 p.m. and 3:30 p.m., so bring your best Easter hat! 

A special Easter lunch will be held at the 1860s Ryon Prairie Home at 12:30 p.m. and sells out quickly! Menu: Split Pea and Bacon Soup, Scotch Eggs, Smoked Ham and Homemade Pan Gravy, Roasted Lamb and Mint Sauce, Mashed Potatoes, Seasoned Green Beans, Roasted Carrots, Parsnips and Onions, Rolls, Hot Cross Buns, Carrot Cake, Chocolate Egg Baskets, Tea, Water, Coffee and Tea Service

Cost for the meal is $15 for adults ages 13 and older; $12 for children ages 5-12 and $4 for children 4 and under.
