The San Saba County Historical Museum hosted the San Saba Homeschool Group for an exciting and educational morning. The children and their families were greeted by the Museum President, Mrs. Blankenship who introduced Mrs. Roberts, dressed in period clothing, for an explanation on early clothing in San Saba County. More fun was to be had inside with Mrs. Cox, also wearing pioneer clothing, working at the post office. The children received mail and a scavenger hunt began. The scavenger hunt was a great idea. It really made one take the time to look around and notice things that might have otherwise been glanced over. The children were presented with a history of the pecan in San Saba and given the opportunity to stone grind corn. Mrs. Bell took them through the schoolhouse and explained some well researched material on local schools of the past and then it was on to branding iron history. Who knew Egypt and San Saba had something in common? Mrs. Blankenship lead the kids through an exploration of tools from days of old and then on to stories of cattle drives and horses living in log cabins. Mrs. Weatherby introduced the children to life in the kitchen, explaining the development of cook stoves and the process for making butter along with a variety of churns and presses. The visit was wrapped up with ukelin music and johnnie cakes. The tour was very well organized and accommodating to a wide age range of children. Thanks again for a great visit and resources from the ladies at the Museum.
