Dirt: Homekeeping in the Progressive Era
June 24, 2017 @ 4:00 pm - July 22, 2017 @ 5:30 pm
An event every week that begins at 4:00pm on Saturday, repeating until July 8, 2017
This after hours tour looks at early 20th century life, a time of great modernization, through the sparkling lens of the domestic housekeeper. At Craftsman Farms, a small domestic staff meant that household chores were often handled by family, particularly by Stickley daughter Mildred, who wrote about her many responsibilities and daily drudgeries in her diary. In 1911, before modern cleaning supplies, how did the housework get done? How many people did it take? Join us and find out!
Saturdays, June 10, June 24, and July 8 at 4:00 p.m.
