Hands-on history

From left, Andy Crissey, Julia Petry-Johnson, Willa Petry-Johnson and Amber Petry-Johnson practice brickmaking at Historic Christ Church & Museum as part of Hands-on History Day on Friday, July 21. Other activities included
writing with a quill pen, grave rubbing, digging for artifacts, playing colonial games and making a silhouette portrait. Inside the museum, they had an opportunity to become an “undertaker,” or colonial builder, by constructing a brick wall, an arch with a keystone and a king-post roof truss. Photo by Gabriel Zakaib
