4-Pioneer-home-displayThe third gallery is a Hands-On Children’s Room. Here children can explore a log cabin and a turn- of- the- century general store. There is “old-timey” clothing to try on, a period general store for pretend shopping and the opportunity to be a mercantile shop keeper with a working antique cash register.  The log cabin provides insight into the past and the much simpler, though not necessarily easier, life in the typical pioneer home. The items on display in the home and store will awaken a whole new world of the history of the times, clothing and conveniences and offer a brief escape from the modern day technology of today.
