The autumn harvest traditionally is an important time for farm communities – a time to gather together to reap the benefits of months of labor supporting crops and livestock and celebrate successes while preparing for winter.
Old-Time Harvest Day gives today’s generation a look into the past. Demonstrations such as leather tooling, soap making, metal smithing, butter churning and two-man sawing are presented throughout the day along with period-appropriate musical performances.
Most activities are hands-on and for all ages. Children make crafts and learn old-fashioned games. Concessions are available. This event is presented by the Southwest Franklin County Historical Society and the City of Grove City.
