Demonstrations

 
 

In addition to the heavy duty farm equipment one would expect to find at an Old Iron Show, the Wilson County Old Iron Club teaches young and old about the domestic ways of the past and how children contributed to the daily life of the family.  Visitors to our show have an opportunity to see old-time laundry methods, various methods for making butter, open-fire cooking as well as cooking on a wood burning stove, making apple butter, sewing on a treadle machine, quilting and tatting, apple cider pressing, and other facets of rural life as it was lived in the past.

 

View photos of some of the many demonstrations of working farm equipment and domestic methods that made up rural life of the past.  This is just a portion of what is available to school children and the public during Old Iron Days, held Thursday through Sunday, the last weekend in September.
