Spring plowing at Sones Farm
The Thomas T. Taber Museum of the Lycoming County Historical Society will be hosting a field trip to the Sones Farm & Home Museum on Saturday, June 1. The tour, given by proprietors Oliver and Mary Sones, will commence at 10 a.m. and last approximately one and one half hours.
Cost is $3.00 per adult, children 10-17 are $2.00, and children under 10 are free. We must have twenty pre-registrations to qualify for the reduced adult price. As the barn can be chilly, visitors are advised that a sweater may be appropriate attire. We will meet at the Sones Museum at approximately 9:45am.
