Cotton Ginning Demonstration

Meeting Place: Museum
3:00 pm - 3:30 pm
How many of us have heard of the cotton gin? You might even know the name of the man credited with inventing the machine. But do you actually know what a cotton gin does and how it works? Join park staff to learn more about this machine that changed history. This program provides an up-close look at how a ten-saw gin functions and feel for yourself the difference between cotton before and after ginning.
