Do you have fancy towels that are used only for special occasions? So did people living 200 years ago! Women personalized household linens showing off their needlework skills honed by stitching samplers.
The fanciest of all household linens in the colonial house, a show towel, was hung as decoration on doors and walls of the home to signify cleanliness. See some of these fancy linens on display at the James Burnside House.
Additionally, visitors enjoy guided tours of the barn, colonial cooking and cider press demonstrations, pumpkin decorating, colonial games and a stitching activity just for kids.
