Old Tinley doesn’t always refer to the pub or downtown.
On Aug. 17, it’ll mean the late 1800s as the Tinley Park Historical Society hosts an Old Settlers Day Fair.
The fair will feature demonstrations of quilting, weaving, canning, carpentry and woodworking by volunteers dressed in period garb. A Civil War brigade will set up camp and exhibit their skills, weapons and possessions.
Kurt Dekker, of the historical society, will dress as train station master Samuel Tinley and hold chats with visitors. He’ll also dress as a snake oil salesman who hassles visitors to sell his wares.
The Tinley Park Historical Society operates out of the Landmark Chapel, 6727 174th St. Refreshments will be served in Saenger Hall downstairs.
