COOKEVILLE – Want a taste of pioneer life? Come to the Cookeville History Museum’s Pioneer Day History Hike this Saturday.

“We’ll have hands-on stations such as weaving, quill writing, butter making, old-time games and animal pelts,” Ashley McKee, Cookeville museums education specialist, said the free event, which will be held from 10 a.m.-2 p.m. at 40 E. Broad St. “Get ready to have some fun and time travel to pioneers days.”

A living history Putnam County pioneer will be there as well, demonstrating washboard laundry and more. Refreshments will be provided.

Participants who visit all the pioneer stations and complete their entry form will be entered in a prize drawing sponsored by Seven Senses Food & Cheer.

History Hikes, presented by the Historical Arts Division of the City of Cookeville Department of Leisure Services, take place on the second Saturday of each month, April through August and in October.

The free, fun and educational activity encourages people to get outside and explore downtown Cookeville’s rich history.
