If your kids are complaining about having to do the simplest chores around the house, and you've tried time and again to explain how easy they have it, then it's time to show them what life really used to be like from 1790 through the 1900s.

The Maine Forest and Logging Museum invites you to Leonard's Mill on Route 178 in Bradley, as they're holding their 'Living History Days' this weekend, October 5 and 6.

During this educational and fun event you can sample bean-hole beans, shortcakes, fresh apple cider, experience wagon rides, a water-powered sawmill, blacksmith shop, log cabin, beehive oven, press apples into cider, visit a 1790s encampment, candle-making, trappers, 20th Maine Civil War encampment, 1900s machinery, Lombard log hauler & more! Certainly lots of hands-on fun.

Daily Admission is $10 for adults, $5 for kids, and members get in free!
