On Saturday, July 16 from 10:30 a.m. to noon, residents will have the pleasure of doing pioneer-style chores. The activity will be held behind the Museum. This family-friendly activity will start with a short explanation and demonstration of how laundry was done during pioneer times. Then, roll up your sleeves and prepare to get wet, because folks will have a chance to try laundering clothes the old way. Participants will walk away with a greater appreciation of what was involved in keeping clean in the desert a hundred years ago.
For more information about this activity and the Museum, find us on Facebook at MesquiteNVMuseum or stop by the Museum at 35 W. Mesquite Blvd. The Museum is open Tuesday through Saturday from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m.
