Wooly Day at Rocky Mount Museum

SULLIVAN COUNTY, Tenn. -  It was like stepping back in time Saturday at the Rocky Mount Historical Association.

Each spring the Living Museum features a day of spring activities to remind people what it was like for settlers in the 18th century.

Saturday guests had the chance to see how a sheep's wool is sheered, washed and spun. We're told sheep can only be sheered once a year--which is why they make it a public event.
Ben DeWitt, a sheep caretaker tells us people ask a lot of questions about the past, "People get curious and want to see how things were done and people have lots of questions about the sheep."

Visitors could also try candle making and egg dying. If you missed the event Saturday, you can visit the Rocky Mount Museum every Tuesday through Saturday.
