Pioneer Day at Harmony Hill for third graders

The Williamsburg Harmony Hill Association recently held a Pioneer Day event for 80 third grade students from the Williamsburg Elementary School. Activities for the day included grinding and shelling corn, spinning and weaving, churning butter, playing with early toys, making beaded necklaces, story telling and musical entertainment by a member of the Cincinnati Dulcimer Society. They also enjoyed a visit to the Dairy House, the oldest historical structure in Clermont County, built at Harmony Hill in 1800 for Maj. Gen. William Lytle. During the next school year, the Association will sponsor a field trip to the Rankin House and the Chilo Park for local fourth graders.

Mark your calendars for Sunday, September 24th for the annual Lytle Birthday celebration. A program on quilts is planned for October.
