Program on Native American Ioway Tribe to be featured at Pioneer Day


• Pioneer Day attendees can take a leisurely tour around the Jackson County Fairgrounds—Forrest Miller will provide free horse and wagon rides. Free tractor and wagon rides will be provided by Mark Drake.

• A large variety of exhibits and demonstrations are planned in the museum and Janssen Hall, as well as outside areas of the Jackson County Fairgrounds. You can watch basket making, butter making, and other pioneer crafts. A steam engine will be stationed near the machine shed.

• Chelle Cain of Three Feathers Trading in Wyoming will make soap over an open fire. Her products will be available for sale. Another open fire will be used by Jerilyn Danielson of Wyoming to make jellies, soup and stew. Jars of jelly will be available for sale, and samples of soup or stew will sell for a nominal charge.

• Quilts will be displayed in Janssen Hall by Loose Tension group members from Maquoketa, and Denise Hughes will return to demonstrate hand quilting.

• Paul Rohrbacher of Scotch Grove will demonstrate his blacksmith skills.

Besides the new exhibitors, old favorites will return:

• Owner Janet Koehler will put her sheep dogs through a herding demonstration.

• Little John and his dog, Katie, will return with their Mountain Man Camp.

• Archie McNeil returns to demonstrate hand corn shelling

• Michelle Turner will show her skills at the spinning wheel

• Mike Mumm of Preston and Naomi Till of Springbrook will offer hand-woven rag rugs

• An old-fashioned chicken and noodles or beef and noodles dinner, prepared by the Maquoketa Eagles, will be available for $5 in Boyer Hall from 11:30 a.m. until gone. A food stand will be open throughout the day with a variety of drinks and sandwiches.

• Both the Jackson County History Museum and the Penningroth Machine Shed are open for free tours during Pioneer Day. The museum will feature special exhibits, while the machine shed will look remarkably different.
