We recommend a Sarah's Trunk presentation before bringing children to the farmstead. This in-class demonstration answers the question, "What was it like in the daily life of the frontier community?"

Our children's Summer Program for Ages 6-12:

Time Travel Thursdays

Takes place every Thursday in July

from 9:00-11:00am

​Highlighting hands-on Pioneer activities.



Sarah’s Trunk, is specially designed to connect students with early pioneer living in Dripping Springs using real artifacts.  By tracing Joseph and Sarah Pound’s journey to Texas and their subsequent family life, Sarah’s Trunk prepares the students for their visit to the Pound House.

Previous years have had activities such as learning the canning process, Pioneer games and toys, including making their own wooden puppet, and presentations from the local Beeswax company which included making their own candles.
