For three weeks each spring, the Old Mill Park becomes a hands-on living history experience for over 1,000 are third-grade public and private school students. Trained Society volunteers don costumes and re-enact a day in the life of a late-1800s St. Vrain Valley pioneer. This program serves as curriculum enhancement for the St. Vrain Valley schools, and a follow-up activity booklet is distributed to all students. Scheduling is coordinated through the SVHS.
