The year was 1919. Woodrow Wilson was president, World War 1 came to an end, and Genevieve and Lancelot Maclin were living with their two children at Oak Hill Farms. Back then they grew cotton, corn, hogs, chickens, and a kitchen garden. We aren’t sure what they used for harvesting, but it may have been something like a harvest bag, made today from a 1919 pattern. Look for them at the Collierville Farmer’s Market tomorrow!
