German immigrants to the Minnesota River Valley contributed a new cultural concept on the frontier: taking Sunday afternoon for quieter work and socializing. Women would come together to knit, tat, crochet, and do other handiwork. Men would gather to work with wood or play music. Take a break, bring a picnic and enjoy a relaxing afternoon as you learn about these frontier hobbies and what a Sunday afternoon was like in the 1870s. Refreshments will be served.
