Present-day Laurel children will get a chance Sunday to see how children in the 1870s might have spent their time when they weren’t working in the city’s mills.
A Laurel Fair Circa 1870 will feature games, contests and crafts children might have enjoyed around the time of Laurel’s founding, including a pie-eating contest and fishing.
The fair — part of a year-long exhibit called “True Life: I am a Laurel Mill Worker,” which explores how some of Laurel’s earliest residents lived and worked — will be held at the Laurel Museum, 817 Main St. from 1:30 to 3:30 p.m.
Space is limited and reservations are required. Registration forms can be found at www.laurelhistoricalsociety.org or call 301-725-7975.
