Explore historic graffiti inside the Brethren's Workshop

January 01, 2017

The Brethren's Workshop was the center of a range of the North Family's industries, including their packaged seed business, broom-making, and cabinetry. Built in 1829, it has been through many changes over time. Those changes can be seen not only in the building itself, but in signatures, sketches, dates, markings and other remnants left by its inhabitants.

Join a tour inside the Workshop to examine these pieces of the past up close and personal, while learning more about some of the stories and information that they tell us. Tours will leave from the Forge on Saturday, April 8 at 2:00PM and Saturday, April 22, at 3:00PM. The tours are $15, and free for members. Tour dates are weather-permitting and subject to change.

Seen here is a hand print found on the third floor's southwest room.
