From locally made quilts with family histories attached to old-timey horse pulls and gospel music, the sprawling museum grounds will have something of interest to just about everyone from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. Saturday and Sunday. Each day will feature traditional crafters throughout the grounds demonstrating their talents at weaving, spinning, quilting and making soap, baskets and lace. The Cracker Cow Camp will also be set up both days, with musicians playing old favorites from time to time, cowboy poet Les McDowell spinning yarns about the Florida cowman and Cowboy Tom's Wild West Show. For the kids, there will be a 1835-era Seminole Indian village, a free petting zoo and quilt piecing. For those who admire strong horses, there's the seventh annual Draft Horse Competition by the Southern Draft Horse Association at 10 a.m. Saturday. For the Sunday early birds (8 a.m.), there will be a free pancake breakfast for the first 500 people through the gate. Other Sunday specials include an exhibit of antique John Deere tractors and buggies and museum volunteers showing how to grind sugar cane to make pure cane syrup. Both days are highlighted by the Hoffman Challenge Traveling Quilt Collection of dolls, quilts and clothes, a Hoffman Challenge fashion show, a quilt appraiser and historian Brenda Grampsas presenting a trunk show. In addition to all the special activities, the museum's historic buildings will be open for tours: • Old Lacoochee School, a typical one-room frame building on piers; • John Overstreet Home, a two-story farmhouse built in the 1860s; • Trilby Depot, built in 1896 and housing a 1913 steam engine; • Enterprise Church, the original was built in 1878 and rebuilt in 1903; • J.L. Bromley Shoe Repair shop, precise building date is unknown, but is believed to be around 1915; • C.C. Smith General Store, built in the 1920s, with typical items on its shelves; Also open are the "Quilt Building," Mabel Jordan Barn and the museum. By Barbara L.
