Buggy rides at the museum 2010

This weekend you can enjoy a trip back in time at the Wayne County Historical Museum, Saturday and Sunday from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m.

Each year the Civil War reenactors set up camp and cook real meals over open fires displaying a simpler way of life.  Many of the reenactors are professionals who give of their time and personal finances to bring back to life for us the ways of pioneer times.  Last year a “shoot out” was reenacted for the benefit of those in attendance.

Handmade crafts, food and other vendors will be set up as well as the museum being open for tours throughout the weekend.  The kids will love the horse and buggy or old school bus rides around the block.
