Orange Johnson House Spring Opening: Life on the Farm

Sunday, April 17, 2016   2 pm - 5 pm

956 High Street


Goats, lambs, chickens, ducks, turkeys and rabbits will take up residence on the Orange Johnson property on April 17th. The Johnson family raised sheep, and likely had some of the other animals that are coming to visit on their farm. “Bring the Farm to You” €¯ will join with the Society to allow visitors a chance to see and even touch the animals that provided the Johnson family with both food and fiber. Admission on the Opening Sunday will include a visit with the animals, a visit inside the Orange Johnson House where stations will be set up for kids with hands-on activities, and face painting! Visual exhibits focus on life in Log Houses and farming in early Worthington. In our lower level young visitors can try their hands building log houses and barns with Lincoln Logs, fill the barn with animals the Johnsons might have had on their farm, try on pioneer outfits, reading books about pioneer lifestyles, and making quilt patterns with magnetic quilt piecing kits. 

Admission: Adults, $5; Children 6 -16, $3; Members Free
