Celebrating Arthurdale’s 80th Birthday in 2014!

When spring arrives, we’ll have Second Saturday happenings beginning in May to celebrate this historic birthday.

When homesteaders moved in during 1934, all arrived with great excitement. It was a second chance at life in a place like no other where they had lived.

Second Saturday events include:

  • May 10 –Gardening with the Kingwood Master Gardeners
  • June 14 – Dave Conley, Homer Laughlin historian, talking about Fiesta Ware
  • July 12 – New Deal Festival adds a new exhibit on the Hodgson style houses
  • August 9 – Ice Cream Social with stories about going to school in early Arthurdale
  • September 13 – Visit and learn about our new Hodgson house E-2
  • October 11 – Eleanor’s Birthday party with period music

Stay tuned for more details and updates.

We invite you to be a part of this special year. Mark your calendars!
