Home School Days at Sauder Village connect kids to history

Press Staff Writer

        Sauder Village invites home school families from throughout the region to connect kids to history during Home School Days, Sept. 2-5 and Sept. 9-12.
        “Our costumed guides and working craftsmen help bring history to life for students of all ages,” said Kim Krieger, Media Relations Manager. “Home School Days are a great time for home school families to have fun in the past while learning something new at Sauder Village.”
        Home school families will receive discounted admission of $8 per person for ages 6 and up.
        Throughout Home School Days, a variety of STEM activities (science, technology, education and math) have been planned for children to enjoy, in addition to engaging opportunities to explore Ohio’s rich history from 1803 through 1928.
        Ohio’s largest living-history village, Sauder Village offers plenty for guests to see and do while experiencing life in Ohio from 1803 thru the 1920s. Families can take a walk through time while exploring wigwams and a trading post at Natives & Newcomers, and then continue to the Pioneer Settlement Area to experience life in Ohio from the 1830s-1870s at the log school, church, barn, homes, gardens and more.
        At the Grime Homestead, guests can experience life in the 1920s while exploring a farmhouse complete with a telephone, radio and player piano.
        Visitors can also enjoy a free train ride, meet farm animals, and watch craftsmen blending skill and creativity in glass, metals, fabric, wood and clay.
        With the completion of a new addition to the Historic Village, guests can now experience the Roaring Twenties at a new 1920s Main Street. As they stroll down the authentic 1920s Main Street, guests can stop by the theater to take a peek at what’s playing on the big screen, explore a hardware and grocery store, check out a Model T at the service station, and sip a cherry phosphate at the soda fountain.
        They can also see the latest fashions at the dry goods store, meet horses at the livery, buy candies at the candy shop, and have fun exploring a bank, barbershop, fire station and depot.
        Sauder Village is located at 22611 SR 2 in Archbold. Hours of operation, safety practices, and answers to frequently asked questions are available online at www.saudervillage.org.
        Other upcoming Sauder Village fall events include Apple Week and Fiber Arts Fest in September. October events include Transportation Exploration and Fall on the Farm.
