10 am to 2 pm
The Georgia Colonial Educational Team

“Tomahawk Hank”
“Kat the Baker”

The smell of open fire cooking and bread-making will be in the air while Hank shows how to make lead bullets over a camp fire, started with flint and steel. Others will demonstrate early Colonial Georgia settlers’ skills, while living in the wilderness.

Hayride 1:00 pm

Bring a picnic lunch and be sure to stick around for the famous “Frying Pan Toss,” where Hank’s wife gets to throw a frying pan at him…at a distance, of course!

Free admission for anyone dressing in Frontier attire!

Adults and children over 12–$6.00
Seniors and children 5 to 12–$5.00
Under 5–FREE

The William Harris Homestead is open to the public on the 1st and 3rd Saturdays of the month, 10 am to 2 pm, March through December.
