On Saturday, April 18 at 10 a.m., the public is invited to the Virgin Valley Heritage Museum for the Second Annual Cotton Seed Planting. The early pioneers in the Virgin Valley raised cotton. This event demonstrates what is involved in the planting and nurturing process in order to get from seed to fiber. Interestingly, the early settlers also grew hay, alfalfa and grapes in this area.
This family-friendly activity will be held in the garden behind the Museum. We look forward to seeing you and sharing the opportunity to see how cotton was planted.
For more information about this event and the Museum, find us on Facebook at MesquiteNVMuseum or stop by the Museum at 35 W. Mesquite Blvd. The Museum is open Tuesday through Saturday from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m.
