Not only can you learn about Dublin’s pioneer past, but you can experience it, too! Each month, try different hands-on activities, like doing laundry with a washboard, panning for gold, churning butter, making hand-crank ice cream or milking our model cow. Master gardeners will be on hand to share their knowledge and provide tips on planting flowers and vegetables through the spring and summer. Take a guided tour through the Kolb House or Pioneer Cemetery. Activities start at Bill’s Studio. All ages are welcome. Perfect for families with small children!

Celebrate springtime on the dairy farm with farm activities, live music, and farm-fresh foods straight from the garden. Farm vendors sell unique products and demonstrate sustainable practices. Learn spring gardening tips while working in the garden with small tools, visit our farm fresh vendors, and take tractor-drawn wagon rides. Children can learn the process of making milk, butter, ice cream, and cheese through hands-on activities and demonstrations in the dairy pen. Visit the dairy exhibit in the historic Murray Schoolhouse and tour the home of Dublin’s farm family, the Kolbs, to see what their kitchen and pantry would look like in the spring of 1949. Enjoy light music and a cup-o-tea in our Spring Tea Cottage inside the Sunday School Barn. Tea is $2 per person.
