Nice place to check out one pioneer family house and washing equipment and learn about the early pioneers of Saratoga, CA during the Civil War (4/1860 - 4/1865).

A recent tour group visited and asked when did the first clothes pin appear? A group called SHAKERS invented useful equipment but didn't really patent them. Check out the web-site www.wikipedia.org and search "clothes pin" to learn more!!

See you at the McWilliams Home for more fun Thumbs Up!
