Event Navigation

Visit Hunter’s Home in Park Hill on special dates in January to see a living history demonstration of 19th-century broom making. Historical Interpreter Maddox Cott will demonstrate the process of weaving and wrapping sturdy pieces of corn stalks together to make a household broom. In the 19th-century, more primitive versions of the broom were improved upon by using winding machines to tightly wrap the bundles of broom corn together using wire or string.

Broom corn is a species of tasseled grass that is grown as a part of the living history program at Hunter’s Home.

Maddox Cott will have broom-making demonstrations on:

  • Friday, January 21 from 1–4 p.m.
  • Friday, January 28 from 1–4 p.m.
  • Saturday, January 29 from 1–4 p.m.
