Read the book, then come discuss it where history comes to life!
The Book: Boston Jane by Jennifer L. Holm
In the 1850s, Jane makes the long journey from Philadelphia to Seattle thinking she will marry a wonderful man there and be a proper lady. But she finds the skills she has practiced, like serving tea and walking gracefully, don’t really apply on the rugged frontier.
The Landmark: White River Valley Museum
Boston Jane comes to life in the exhibits of the White River Valley Museum. Participate in hands-on activities that engage in the history of our area as well as themes from the book. Journey through the Museum on a scavenger hunt and explore a pioneer cabin, climb aboard a caboose, and the brave may even try on a historic corset!
