Going Nuts: Open House
February 19, 2023 @ 1:00 pm - 4:00 pmFree
Mast producing trees, like walnut and hickory were important to the McKinnis family and their neighbors. Not only was the wood used in many of their structures, the nuts of the black walnut, shagbark hickory, shellbark hickory, and butternut hickory were used in baking and making ink. Hancock Park District is inviting you to join, Mrs. Boylan, a neighbor of the McKinnis family, in the kitchen as she shares samples of her walnut cookies and hickory nut bread to all who stop by.
Meet at the McKinnis House. All ages are welcome to this free event. Registration is not required.
