Harvest Time At Booker T. Washington National Monument

A dynamic, educational, FREE, and family fun event for visitors of all ages, Harvest Time, portrays life on a mid-19th century small slave-holding tobacco plantation. Explore the structures, gardens and grounds while experiencing the culture of subsistence and cash crop farming.

This event includes costumed demonstrations of tasks performed such as blacksmithing, woodworking, open hearth cooking, butter churning, soap making, apple drying, and tobacco twisting. Sometimes sheep shearing, wool washing, carding, spinning, knitting, tatting, doll making and pottery are also part of the event.
