Labour of Thine Hands

Ponder for a moment all of the skills and trades practiced by others that you rely upon daily: auto mechanics, carpenters, electricians, plumbers just to name a few! Just as you need skilled laborers to live, Dr. Jones also relied on the tradespeople of Washington for their services. For one special weekend, we’re bringing many of the town tradespeople to Barrington! Hear the ringing of the blacksmith’s hammer, watch a potter turn clay into vessels, get your hands dirty as you help mold bricks, or help a laundress scrub her wash. Experience history as it comes to life before your eyes! Contact Ben Baumgartner at ben.baumgartner@thc.texas.gov or 936-878-2214 x248 for more information.
