Heritage Hall

Free indoor fun

Visit The Heritage Hall for hands-on activities, demonstrations, make and take projects by community groups emphasizing our western, agricultural history. Begin your journey at the Conestoga Covered Wagon. Meet alpacas, learn about bee keeping, touch animal skins, sew a quilt block for a veteran, and more. Make rope and crafts at the Make and Take area. Pull up a chair and sit a spell for informal demonstrations on the front porch. Participate in our contests: longest potato peel, Fastest Fingers in the West knitting and crochet, and team jigsaw puzzle.
