 Messenger photos by Andrea Cordle
 Green’s Farm Heritage Days in Orient was held Sept. 6-7. The annual event was sponsored by Pickaway and Ohio Farm Bureaus and Doris and William Green. Carol Green, from Darbydale, demonstrates the spinning wheel in the tourist home. The cabin was built around 1929 for travelers. The cost to stay was $1 per night. Green is a cousin of Doris and William Green, who own the farm. She volunteers at the event annually.

 Dave Trotter, from the Slate Run Living Historical Farm, participates in the the Heritage Days event. Here Trotter makes buckets and barrels out of wood, as they did in the 1880s.

 A demonstration is made at the Blacksmith Shop. The shop was moved to the Green Farm from Darbydale in 1979. It comes complete with bellows and wheelwright tools.
