Families are invited to enjoy the changing seasons and a fun time together in a uniquely 19th century atmosphere at “Spring Fling” on Saturday, April 10, at the Doak House Museum.
“Spring Fling” will be filled with activities for all ages from 10 a.m. until 1 p.m. at the museum on the Tusculum College campus. The event is free and open to the public.
Enjoy such seasonal activities as an egg roll, egg races and dancing around the Maypole on the lawn of the Doak House, the home of one of Tusculum College’s co-founders, the Rev. Samuel Witherspoon Doak, and built in the early 1800s.
Storytelling, games from the 19th century and face painting are among the other activities planned for the event.
Refreshments will be available for purchase.
The Doak House Museum Shop, featuring 19th century toys and collectibles, will also be open during the event.
Those who have not visited the Doak House previously are extended a special invitation to the event. Tours will be given of the Doak House, which offers a window to the past that not only played a significant role in the life of the College but in the community as well.
