GREENVILLE — The Audie Murphy American Cotton Museum will be taking a step into the past Saturday, by hosting the annual Frontier Fun Day.

The event is designed to show children what life was like during an era where there were no televisions, video games or cell phones.

Children will have a chance to participate in a variety of games, watch demonstrations of crafts like paper making and rope making, learn archery, shoot a BB gun, make campfire biscuits and home-made butter and more.

All of the activities will take place between 10 a.m. and 1 p.m. Saturday on the grounds of the Audie Murphy/American Cotton Museum, 600 Interstate 30 East in Greenville.

Admission is $5 per child, ages 4-15, with one adult free for each paid child. After that, it will be $5 per adult. Children must be accompanied by an adult.

Those wanting additional information can call the museum at 903-450-4502.
