There’s always cool things to see and do at Atlanta History Center. We make it a point to go there a few times a year as the landscape, decorations and activities are constantly changing.

Throughout July Atlanta History Center is offering a number of new activities and demonstrations at the Smith Farm Exhibit that you can take part in.

Atlanta History Center created a number of new activities to see and do from July 2nd to August 2nd at the Smith Farm house and gardens.

Become an honorary member of the Smith Family and see how they would have gotten by in the mid to late 19th century. Here’s a rundown of what will be offered.

  • Candle Making – Education facilitators will help guests dip their own candles to take home.
  • Carding – See a demonstrate on how wool is carded and prepared for spinning into yarn.
  • Cooking –  See several historical cooking methods and ways of preserving food. 
  • Wood Working – See how a variety of hand tools would have been used to fashion wooden products.
  • Smoking and Curing –  See how the Smiths would have preserved the meat they harvested from their hogs. This station shows off already cured hams and details the preservation process with salting and wrapping the pork.
  • Clay and Pottery –  Learn how native cultures made pottery using the coil method and then decorated their pieces using stamps. Guests can try to make their own piece of pottery using air dry clay and then decorate it using the tools provided.
