Prairie Village Museum comes alive June 5

By Staff | May 27, 2016

The Fairmont Cream Station, Village Square Saloon, Silva School and all of the other historic buildings at Rugby’s Prairie Village Museum will be abuzz with activity when the Museum Comes Alive noon to 5 p.m. Sunday, June 5.

Village “residents” will share stories about how people went about their lives in area businesses, homes and schools in the late 1880s and early 20th century. Blacksmith Dean Hagen, Maddock, will be at work in the blacksmith shop. And Julia Petrovic of Slavic Heritage Farm will demonstrate how to make herbal salves and soap.

Friends of the Museum will have burgers, hot dogs, chips, lemonade and coffee available for sale from noon until gone. Picnic tables will be set up throughout the museum grounds.

“This is a wonderful time to explore the museum and take a walk through history,” said organizer Pat Bye. “We’ll have costumed interpreters in most buildings and you’ll find townsfolk strolling the boardwalk.”

Special admission rates are available for families of four or more; admission is free with the purchase of a Geographical Center Historical Society membership. For more information on this and other upcoming events, visit www.prairievillagemuseum.com.

Museum Comes Alive is supported by Friends of the Museum, the Pierce County Endowment Fund, and the Rugby Convention and Visitors’ Bureau.
