Yesterday, I was entertained by Native American dancers, storytelling and re-enactments during Living History Day, part of a multi-weekend celebration of Mendocino Heritage Days. The Ford House Visitor Center, built in 1854 by one of Mendocino’s founding mill owners, provided the stage for today’s events. Craft demonstrations of weaving, spinning, butter making, and the most popular, ice cream making! A metal craftsman was making spoons and buttons , and now I have a hand-made pewter button. This weekend was a mixture of fun and educational events that I hope you enjoyed. If not, don’t miss next weekend, as the festivities continue with a Jazz concert, history walks, and the not-to-be-missed Moonlight Cemetery Tour. Full schedule.
