Red Mill Museum Village to Host Agro-Industry Day
CLINTON—The Red Mill Museum Village is hosting its third annual Agro-Industry Day on Sunday, June 26thfrom 12 p.m. to 4 p.m. The event is a fun, hands-on day for families and history buffs. It is generously sponsored by the McEldowney Family Foundation.
At Agro-Industry Day, families can learn first-hand about what it was like to be a miller, a quarryman, or a farmer through hands-on activities, offering a fun afternoon of experiencing the past (and having a good time!). Activities will include learning how pulleys work, sifting and shelling corn, churning ice cream and butter, and learning how dynamite was wicked in our limestone quarry! While it’s primarily a family event, Agro-Industry Day is fun for all ages!

In addition to fun hands-on activities, guests can also experience antique engines through the Delaware Valley Old Time Power and Equipment Association. Guests can also tour the museum’s two special exhibits for the year-Sunny Side Up, an exhibit about breakfast in the nineteenth century, and Farm to Table, about food production and packaging around 1900. Both offer a great opportunity to Taste the Past!

Explore the beautiful Red Mill Museum Village, the setting of over two-hundred years of history at this fun event. The event is free for Museum Members and children under 6, $10 for adults, $8 for seniors, active duty military, and veterans, and $6 for children 6 to 12. For more information, please contact Tim Betz, Assistant Director, at programs@theredmill.org or 908-735-4101 Ext. 102.
