Making History Workshops at King Manor are a free weekly summer program for pre-teens and teens (ages 10+), every Wednesday! Every workshop features one project based on the daily lives of the diverse community of Queens in the 1800s, where kids can try their hands at real recipes, methods, and concepts from the 19th century.
