I’d like to give a shout out to the wonderful people over at The Field House Museum, of whom I’ve recently had the pleasure of making acquaintances with. The museum, named after the family that founded it, was built in 1845 but was officially designated as a National Historic Landmark in 2007. Most notably, it housed Roswell Field, an attorney, and his son, Eugene Field, a noted writer of children’s stories. Clearly, Eugene Field is the one who got my attention, but did anyone really think otherwise?
Every month, the Field House Museum hosts a day of fun that’s full of kids activities the whole family can enjoy. It’s called Kids Corner, and the theme will change monthly, but the fun and education will stay ramped to the max. Better still, after Kids Corner ends, our wee lil’ lads can take along museum provided stuffed animals for a tour of the historic house and explore the gallery exhibits.
I recently did an illustration for Kids Corner and will be volunteering my time to help the Field House Museum develop their program further, so if you're in the area, swing by and pay us a visit. We'd be glad to have you!
