Candle Dipping

Sunday, October 11, 2020 - 1–4 p.m.

Try your hand at dipping candles, and make one to take home. Agnes Pond made her family’s candles, which were the only source of light for the Pond family before the 1860s.

Learn first-hand why the Pond family was so pleased when kerosene lamplight became available!
