Historical Presentation: Traditional Powder Horn Craft

Please mark your calendars for Sunday, June 26th at 2:00 p.m. and plan to attend the Durham Historical Society’s next offering in our lecture series.

Join Frank Willis of the Honourable Company of Horners as he presents a lively and interesting program of how the colonialists and their descendants  (up to the time of the invention of plastic) used animal horns to make powder horns, storage vessels, buttons and spoons. Mr. Willis is an expert in the construction of Pennsylvania style powder horns, as well as many other items, and will bring many of his creations with him.

The presentation will be held on the Durham Village Green (weather permitting). Bring a chair or blanket if you desire. In case of inclement weather, the event will be held in the Durham Mill. There is no charge for the program although contributions to the mill’s restoration fund will be appreciated. Light refreshments will be served following the program.
