Rub a Dub Dub—It’s Wash Day at the Museum

On Saturday, June 10, the public is invited to experience pioneer-style chores in the backyard of the Virgin Valley Heritage 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.
