Become part of the living history at Sherbrooke Village by walking in the shoes of a villager…literally. You’ll don the wardrobe of the late 1800s, before touring the village to try your hand at the daily activities of the villagers. Your experience could include: paddle-churning butter, candle-making, hand cream making, baking (and sampling) delicious cookies or biscuits, and discovering the art of pottery, woodworking and sewing.
