Log Cabin Days is a statewide celebration recognizing historic log cabins all over Michigan. The celebration this weekend at Waterloo Farm Museum will include a demonstration of blacksmithing and a civil war soldier encampment.
Michigan Artist Blacksmith Association members will demonstrate their skills at the fixed forge and their own portable forges.
Civil War reenactors will be carrying out their daily activities in the camp, and showing how those they left behind coped.
Visitors can also try their hand at wood carving, or learn how to make socks on a 19th century sock machine. The baker will be busy in the bake house, Mr. Realy will be working in the barn, and Mrs. Realy will be gardening.
Log Cabin Day is the only annual statewide log cabin celebration in the USA. The farm has one of the few log cabins open to the public.
Hours are from 10am-5pm this Saturday and Sunday. Admission is $5 for adults and $2 for children ages 5-12. Admission includes a guided tour of the ten-room farmhouse. The museum is located at 13493 Waterloo Munith Rd
