  • Saturday, March 10 - Maple Family Fun

    Have some maple sugar fun from 2 to 4 pm on Saturday, March 10 at the St Lawrence County Historical Association at the Silas Wright House! Kids will tap a maple tree the old-fashioned way, make "wax-on-snow," and learn about syrup-making - their caretakers can take in the SLCHA museum exhibitions (including a new one on maple tapping and syrup-making) and Silas Wright House, perhaps making a sample of maple cream or drinking some maple coffee. A basket from Finen Maple Products will also be raffled off at the event.

    Children's books, like The American Girl's Handy Book by Lina and Adelia Beard, and American Kids in History: Colonial Days by David C King, are available for purchase at the SLCHA. Old-fashioned toys like spinning tops, jacks, and Jacob's ladders are also available, and SLCHA members receive a 10% discount on most items in the Gift Shop.
