Second Saturday Family Program

Visitors Center, Joseph Medill Room
12pm – 3pm
Free with parking


Theme: Founding Fathers

Did you know that Robert McCormick and Benjamin Franklin both ran newspapers? Our printing activity will recognize the tie between these two printers. Then we’ll test our hand at using a quill pen to sign a copy of the Declaration of Independence. We’ll have a station about the ladies of the 18th century as well!

On the Second Saturday of each month, March through November, McCormick House staff presents a drop-in family program. No registration is needed. Locations and themes vary by the season.
