ORRINGTON - In addition to playing a part in open farm day, Curran Farm & Museum hosted its annual summer festival.
Those who attended were able to experience life on the farm if you were living in the 1930s.
Demonstrations on pulley systems, the art of blacksmith, and play with some non-typical household pets, were just a few things people were able to experience.
Volunteers say people should get to experience this kind of history more often.
"To me something like this is honoring our heritage as a country, our heritage as a rural country. It's a place to go to experience some of the lifestyle aspects of that era," Anne Harrison says.
Curran Farm & Museum will be holding a blacksmith course this coming fall for all those who are intested in taking up that skill.
