Kids History Day offers opportunity to explore local agriculture history
The Marathon County Historical Society invites upper-elementary and middle school-age children to register for Kids History Day. This free, fun activity day will be Thursday, Aug. 16, from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m., at the Woodson History Center, 410 McIndoe St., Wausau.
Children ages 8 and older will have fun exploring what life was like in the early days of farming. Activities will be related to the Historical Society’s newest exhibit, Milking Time: Evolution of the Dairy Industry in Marathon County, opening in June. Children will be able to handle artifacts, make and taste dairy products, and related activities that take them deeper into farm history.
There is no registration fee. Participants are asked to bring their own bag lunch. Milk, lemonade, water, and a snack will be provided.
For more information or to register your child(ren), please call the Marathon County Historical Society at 715-842-5750. Registration closes at 4:30 p.m. Aug. 14.
