See Rockwall history come to life on Founders Day

ROCKWALL, TX (May 13, 2014) Do not miss a visit the Rockwall County Historical Foundation Museum location at 901 E. Washington in Harry Myers Park on Founders Day, May 17!

There will be Living History Exhibitors performing blacksmith chores, spinning  yarn, Dutch oven cooking by the Chuck Wagon, toy makers with supplies to create rag dolls (boy or girl) or cornhusk doll, and members of the Rockwall Cavalry Camp, including a Civil War Field Surgeon, providing a glimpse into the history of that era 150 years ago.

In addition, members of the Historical Foundation will provide other hands-on experiences including butter churning, washing on a scrub-board, separating cotton seed from cotton bolls, and bee tinning.  There will be a scavenger hunt and other old fashioned fun.

This is a Must See Founders Day event and a unique way to experience history for young and old alike.
