Life on the frontier was tough in the 18th century.  Without pharmacies or over the counter medication that we are used too, people had to use what they had around them. Join us for this workshop about medicine in the 18th century and get a chance to see salve and poultices made using a common recipe from the period. This program is best suited for ages 10 and up. Meet at the back-boat ramp, and we will walk the history trail to the trade cabin. Social distancing protocols will be followed.
