What is a DIY History?

Experience History for yourself!

DIY History invites guests to West Overton Village for hands-on and historic fun. This program series is made up of more than mere demonstrations, we invite you to interact with real artifacts from our collections! 

Tour the new exhibition, enjoy historic recipes in the Summer Kitchen, and experience daily work in the village. 

For each date in the series, we carefully curate 4-5 activities for your group to participate in. No two dates are the same, ensuring that you’ll learn something new every time!

Will you play games from the 1800s, or maybe learn how to weave by hand?

Perhaps you’ll see how technology has changed – from washboards to washing machines – and more!

Join us for the following dates, and remember to check our social media accounts frequently to stay updated about the program!
