Southern Heritage Month
Speaker: David Routten
Program is Free and
Open to the Public.
The topic of this meeting is: 'Living in Fox Hill in 1860'
David Routten will give us a picture of life for Fox Hill men and women. Typical life during that time did not involve all the things we take for granted today, such as electricity, hot water tank, a washing machine or our favorite television program.
David will cover the jobs, the families, the church, the schools, the businesses - shops, etc., the homes, where you got your clothes, where you got your food, and who helped you when you needed help.
Instead of jumping into your car, you had to walk most places. Families didn't live in mansions (or just exceptionally large houses). How did grandma wash the clothes? Come and hear how things were back then.
A short business meeting
will precede the speaker program. The Society currently has approximately one
hundred households and is open to anyone with an interest in history and
genealogy. You may contact Katie Arredondo for additional information.
