Midway Village hosts Victorian History Explorers

ROCKFORD (WREX) - Guests of Midway Village Museum traveled back to a simpler time Sunday. June 28, with Victorian History Explorers.

This family-friendly event explores the daily crafts and handiworks from the 1800s. Families were able to meet costumed re-enactors in Victorian Village and work with them to complete various craft projects. 

David Byrnes, Midway Village President, stated, "Families are learning things together. It is an opportunity to talk to children about the way things use to be 100 years ago versus the way things are today. We need to understand where we came from and the impact our modern day world has on our lives now."  

Midway Village will be hosting another Victorian History Explorers event Sunday, August 9. This event will feature Victorian Age food and allow guests to churn their own butter.
