Maplelawn Farmstead, Inc. will open its doors to the public every Tuesday this February from 9 a.m. to 2 p.m., furthering their mission of creating experiences that connect Hoosiers to the rich, cultural history of the 1930s Great Depression era on an Indiana family farm. Visitors can stop in for a coffee and conversation hour from 9-10 a.m. and take part in a program after. Maplelawn Farmstead is located at 9575 Whitestown Road in Zionsville, Ind.
Each week’s programming will be a little different, but guests can always expect to enjoy a coffee hour and participate in anything from viewing an exhibit or documentary and hearing a speaker to enjoying a class or workshop. In the afternoon, guests are invited to bring any knitting, sewing, art or writing project and enjoy the camaraderie and open studio atmosphere of the farmhouse. Most programs are free, but a small free-will donation would be greatly appreciated.
