Family Living Center
Location: Behind Cultural Hall
The Family Living Center provides demonstrations about domestic life for visiting school children and families. Many tasks in a frontier community involved all members of the family. Children could be assigned to churn butter, gather stones for candle making, card wool, and more. Apprentices could begin to learn a trade as young as age twelve.
Visitors here can also consider how to load a wagon for the trek west.
