(Yes, there is no apostrophy in Robbins!) is located in Nelsonville, Ohio,
on the campus of Hocking College. Most of the buildings were built
around the early 1800's and have been moved and reconstructed at Robbins
Crossing. Robbins Crossing is part of the Hocking College School
of Natural and Historical Interpretive Services program. Students
taking specific courses in Historical Interpretation research the time
period (Ohio pioneers in the 1850's) and present what life was like in
early Ohio. Some of the many stations that our students have visited
in the past include candlemaking, cooking, the cobbler, the blacksmith,
the schoolhouse, carding and spinning wool, the doctor, the herb garden,
the smokehouse, the cooper, dying wool, and toys and games.
page is quite new, and still under construction, look for pictures of our
trips in the weeks to follow!
