BROOM SHOP

Before the invention of plastic, brooms were made of a plant called broom corn, with wood handles, on a machine worked by hand. In this building, you will learn the process of broom making in the 19th century, from sorting the broom corn to the finished product. Brooms and broom products made here on our historic machine are available for sale in our Gift Shop!
