Lighting is something we take so much for granted today. In the 18th century, having light after sundown meant having a good supply of candles, and every colonial homestead would have been involved in the common household task of candle making. Join Museum Curator Chad Bogart at Fort Watauga and make your very own hand dipped beeswax candle. Also, learn about candles and other sources of light in the 18th century such as fat lamps, Betty lamps, cruises, and sparking lamps. It’s sure to be an “illuminating” experience!
