Enjoy winter at Ross Farm Museum!
Many years ago life certainly changed with the seasons, the warm summer always seemed too short and fall was always a rush to get things prepared for the harsh Winter that awaited. Though the winter could be harsh, families found comfort and entertainment in anything they could, a short sleigh ride around the farm, some coasting on the neighbor's hill or simply the warmth of a wood fire. Take a sleigh ride and experience life as it was many years ago, we have friendly farm animals and events that take place all throughout the winter.
In the early 1800's the only source of light would have been by candle. Many families would have had to make their own candles or else go with no light at all. Come join staff in making dipped candles just like the settlers would have done years ago. For a full list of our winter events - click here
