Village Life

Industrialization and Immigration

Visit Meadowcroft’s 19th-century village to learn about how early industrialization affected rural life in the Upper Ohio Valley.

Students will visit historic log houses and learn what life was like before modern conveniences. The topics include textile manufacture, pre-electric lighting, and historical games. In addition to visiting the log homes, students will experience a simulated lesson in a one-room schoolhouse and get to witness a blacksmith at work in his forge.
