Brownie Outing: Heritage Day - Celebrating Community Legacy Badge Step 4

In order to complete Step #4 of our Celebrating Community Legacy Badge we visited Weaver Village for Heritage Day.  Step #4 is Be a Landmark detective and we chose to tour a landmark that honors the past.  We were to visit a historic landmark, such as the place where a leader was born or an old battleground.  Or visit a historical society or museum.  

At the Historical Village at Weaver Park you step back into the 1800s and experience what life was like as you tour the historical village. See basket weaving, a blacksmith, caning, live entertainment, food and more!

This was a family event that everyone was welcome to.

For any girl unable to attend and who wants to earn the badge, they will need to work with their parents at home to complete Step #4, which is visiting a community landmark (ie. Historical Weaver Village, First Responders Park, etc.)  

It was such a great day!
