Mary Charlotte’s Garden Party

Third Saturday in July, 1:00-4:00 p.m.

Mary Charlotte was Philip Foster’s long-suffering wife, and mother of nine (four when she made the trip around the horn in 1842). To celebrate her, and the many pioneer women who joined her in Oregon, come to our garden party on the third Saturday of July for a fashion show. Enjoy live music, tour the historic farm on the Oregon Trail, and learn about 19th century fashions. ¬†Tour our historic Rose Ramble, with starts of pioneer roses available for your garden. View the needlework of pioneer women, and learn about their crafts from modern practitioners. Kids and grandkids will enjoy the hands-on activities, like corn-grinding, croquet, crosscut sawing, and building a log cabin.

Admission is $5.00 per person or $20.00 per family of any size, free to members of the Jacknife-Zion-Horseheaven Historical Society.
