"Step into 1867" Dress in period costume and experience life in 1867

The “Step Into 1867” program offers three levels of participation. Participants can choose to be a “witness” and observe village life in the 1860s, an “explorer” and dress in heritage costume to experience the history, or they may become a “discoverer”, where they will dress in period costume and become fully immersed in a villager’s role.
