History Comes to Olney Library

The Olney Library will be taking a trip back in time on August 13 at 10:30!  Donna Will, Mistress of Woodlawn Manor Museum, in Sandy Spring, will present an interactive hands-on history program entitled "Woodlawn's Wagon", in period costume. A spinning wheel demonstration will be included as she weaves a tale of life in the past, circa 1800...and the mystery of the Underground Railroad.  Old time toys will be demonstrated as well.  This is for ages 5 and up.

For those who want more history, Woodlawn Manor is a 19th century brick manor house with a stone barn, slave log cabin, dairy/smokehouse, general store, carriage house, and gazebo garden surrounded by extensive  meadows, trails, ponds and streams. You can get more information at
