Members of the public are invited to experience life in the 1880s at the annual Old Woodside Store Day on May 1.
The San Mateo County Historical Association and Woodside Storekeepers welcome the public for an afternoon of free activities at the historic Woodside Store. Attendees will learn about the history of the store and Redwood logging, and children will have the opportunity to use a two-man saw, cleave shingles with a mallet and froe, compete in games and make dolls.
There will also be a performance from three members from the Goat Hill Girls of traditional bluegrass music.
The event will take place from noon to 4 p.m. at the Woodside the corner of Tripp Road and Kings Mountain Road in Woodside. Event parking is at the Kiely Equestrian Center (just past the Woodside Store on Tripp Road).
The Woodside Store is a San Mateo County Park operated by the San Mateo County Historical Association. For more information, see the website or call 650-299-0104.
