Your town wasn't a real town unless you had a print shop.
The newspaper was the only way to get news from other towns back then.
Newspapers were only put out about once a week.
Newsprint was made out of rags instead of paper becaue of the demand for paper.

Welcome to the Weaving Shop!
Henry J. Carrol was the owner of the plantation. He had a son named Philip who was 19 years old. Henry had 65 slaves and Philip had 10.
The house was divided into two sections. One for the family, and the other for the slaves.
The women would teach their children.
The slaves, as one of their jobs, would cook the food in the house and wash the dishes afterward
Machine Shop was from 1914 originally in Providence, Rhode Island
Still used to repair Greenfield Village today
Used at first by the boys who attended school there

Video on how they made newspaper.
Firestone farm resembles life on a farm in eastern Ohio in the 1880's.
Workers play the roles of the Firestones.
It also includes a barn with animals.
The quarters show the average home of a slave.
The buildings were located on the Hermitage plantation in South Carolina
Built in 1850
-The Colonial loom was faster than the other one but could only make basic geometric shapes.
-The individual string loom could make more intricate patterns but was very slow.
-Joseph Marie Jacquard developed a system of punched cards that strings could be placed through. When a card was done being used, the next card would come across the belt. This made the individual string loom much more efficient.
The strings of Jacquard's loom
The cards of Jacquard's system
Was built in 1760 in Andover, Connecticut
80% is original, and the building is older than the United States itself!
The farmers had to do a lot of pickling in order to preserve their food
Had to plan their food supply one year in advance in order to be prepared for the winter ahead.

The Glass Shop came to Greenfield Village in 1930.
In order to make colored glass, they use minerals that melt into the glass, therefore changing the color.
The melting temperature depends on the type of glass that you're using (2100-2300 Degrees Fahrenheit)
When you heat glass, it turns orange, but that is the color of the heat, not the glass.
Sometimes the chimney would catch on fire and the children would run up the ladder with a bucket of water to put it out.
Newspapers helped insulate the walls, while cardboard insulated the ceiling.

Owned by John Mattox during the great depression.
Land was bought by his grandfather, Amos Mattox just after slavery.
One of very few to own land after slavery
