Experience “a day in the life” at the Heritage Farm with the Frugal Farmstead. Using tips from 19th Century literature such as The Virginia Housewife, costumed interpreters engage visitors in performing daily life skills using tools and techniques of the time period. Seasonal activities may include sewing, spinning, weaving, gardening, cooking, laundry and other household chores. The Frugal Farmstead program is held at Heritage Farm, beside the Sargeant Museum at 214 Fredericksburg Ave., Louisa. This free program follows an open-house setting from 10 a.m. until 1 p.m.
