Old Fashioned Ice Cream Social


Sunday, July 16 1-4 pm

Fleece to Shawl Demonstration all Afternoon


Enjoy the peaceful atmosphere of an old fashioned Country Ice Cream Social. Traditionally, the Social was an opportunity to relax the social code and visit with friends and neighbors. Ice cream and lemonade are complimentary with your paid admission to the museum today. Take a trip back to colonial times right in Pittsburgh's back yard. Join us for a day of treats, special demonstrations and lots of hands on activites!


Take time to visit the "Fleece to Shawl" demonstration, presented in collaboration with the Butler Spinners and Weavers Guild. A recently shorn sheep fleece will be spun into yarn, and woven into a lovely shawl, all in the space of the afternoon! Purchase a raffle ticket for the handmade shawl. The lucky winner will be chosen at the Hydref Fall Festival in October.


At 2:30pm, enjoy a Family Friendly concert presented by the Wayward Companions in the Tavern.


As always, there will be the savory scent of woodsmoke from the cooking and baking in the Armstong's log house and treats from the bee-hive bake oven.

Demonstrations and hands-on opportunities will abound for visitors of all ages.


Event Admission charged: $5/Adults, $3/Children & members
