SHENANDOAH JUNCTION, W.Va. — The Peter Burr House will host tours and a demonstration titled “The Making of 18th Century Toys” Saturday from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m.

Attendees can take a free tour of the oldest wood-frame house in West Virginia, built circa 1751.

Refreshments will be available and those attending can watch wildlife in the natural surroundings of the Peter Burr Farm. Additionally, the bread bakers of the Burr House will be baking a limited number of loaves in the outdoor bake oven to sell.

It was not all work and no play in 1751. Ever wonder what kind of toys and games were used in the 18th Century? That information will be shared Saturday. 

For more information or to register, call Lorri Schwartz at 304-728-7151, send an email to lschwrtz3@aol.com or go to www.relivinghistory.org.

 The event is sponsored by Reliving History and the Jefferson County Historic Landmarks Commission.
