Volunteers in the Great Smoky Mountains National Park will demonstrate the work that women traditionally did in the past.

There will also be exhibits of artifacts and photos and an audio exhibit of the last child born in the Davis-Queen House, which will be open for tours.

The event is free and is from 10 a.m. - 4 p.m.

The museum is on the North Carolina side of the park, next to the Oconaluftee Visitor Center on Newfound Gap Road.
